  9. Malignant tumour (past history or concurrent disease)(except carcinoma in situ or basalioma in remission)
  10. History of bone harvesting on iliac crest contraindicating new iliac crest bone graft harvesting or bone marrow collection
  11. Insulin dependent diabetes
  12. Any evidence (confirmed by PCR) of active infection with HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C infection
  13. Any evidence of Syphilis
  14. Known allergies to products involved in the production process of MSC
