This is a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, active controlled, single site safety and efficacy study in subjects suffering from chronic wrist osteoarthritis comparing a single ADRC injection generated with the Transpose® RT system into the wrist.


The focus of this study is to investigate the therapeutic benefit of autologous adipose-derived regenerative cells in patients with wrist arthritis. The hypothesis of this trial is that the use of adult-adipose derived regenerative cells as a treatment of wrist arthritis will induce healing and decrease pain compared to the control group. With adult-adipose derived regenerative cell administration, the medical practitioner would anticipate a reduction in inflammation, acceleration in healing, decreased pain in patients post procedure, and increased function and strength in the affected wrist. Currently, no clinical studies have been constructed to determine the efficacy of ADRCs in wrist arthritis patients.

Subjects will fall into two categories: treatment group (20) and control group (20 subjects). The treatment group will undergo a small liposuction procedure and receive wrist osteoarthritis treatment with an ultrasound-guided injection of 5 ml adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) into the wrist. The control group will receive a 5 ml cortisone injection into the wrist.

Subjects who have received a corticosteroid injection in the treatment site
Subjects on an active regimen of chemotherapy
Allergy to sodium citrate of any "caine" type of local anesthetic
Subjects pregnant or breast feeding
Subject is in the opinion of the Investigator or designee, unable to comply with the requirements of the study protocol or is unsuitable for the study for any reason. This includes completion of patient reported outcome instruments
