  2. New-onset CLAD (defined as a persistent (3weeks apart) fall in FEV1 of at least 20% from the mean of the two best post-transplant values taken at least 3 weeks apart) in the 12 months prior to the screening visit. Other causes of a fall in FEV1 (acute cellular or humoral rejection, active infection, anastomotic stenosis etc.) must be excluded as per international guidelines.
  3. Stable immunosuppression regimen, as assessed by the investigator, in the 8 weeks prior to the screening visit.
  4. Available for all specified assessments at the study site through the completion of the study, including the protocol bronchoscopies.
  5. Provision of written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Any condition that in the opinion of the Investigator may interfere with the safety of the patient, his / her completion of required follow-up visits or evaluation of the study objectives
  2. Untreated cellular or humoral rejection
  3. Clinically meaningful and untreated viral, bacterial or fungal infection
  4. Use of azithromycin or another macrolide antibiotic, if commenced within 8 weeks of the screening visit
  5. Intravenous pulsed methylprednisolone, within 4 weeks of the screening visit
  6. Use of extracorporeal photopheresis, within 4 weeks of the screening visit
  7. Use of total lymphoid irradiation, within 4 weeks of the screening visit
  8. Poor functional status not expected to survive 6 months
  9. Allergy to beef products
