Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in Kidney Transplant Recipients

Brief description of study

The general aim of the present study is to test a cell therapy with autologous ex-vivo expanded mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) as a strategy to induce tolerance in living-donor kidney transplant recipients. MSCs will be prepared accordingly to established protocols, starting from bone marrow explants of living-donor kidney transplant recipients obtained 3-4 months before kidney transplant. From these samples, MSCs will be expanded in Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) approved facilities and used for the present study in patients undergoing kidney transplantation.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT02012153
