Single Donor Banked Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for the Treatment of COVID-19 Induced ARDS: (MSCs COVID-19) (H-47561)



MSCs for COVID 19: Single Donor Third Party Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for the Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 Induced Acute Respiratory Failure: A Pilot Study

At this time, we are only enrolling at Houston Methodist Hospital (HMH)/Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and are not shipping cells outside of BCM/HMH.

This is a study for patients who have respiratory infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 that have not gotten better. Because there is no standard treatment for this infection, patients are being asked to volunteer for a gene transfer research study using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

Stem cells are cells that do not yet have a specific function in the body. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of stem cell that can be grown from bone marrow (the spongy tissue inside of bones). Stem cells can develop into other types of more mature (specific) cells, such as blood and muscle cells.

The purpose of this study is to see if MSCs versus controls can help to treat respiratory infections caused by SARS-CoV-2.

Age requirements: 18 years and older (adult, older adult)
