Project Objective: Clinical Trial, Phase 1 or Phase 1/2

In Utero Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation For The Treatment Of Fetuses With Alpha Thalassemia Major

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Maternal bone marrow-derived CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells. Indication Fetal alpha thalassemia major. Therapeutic Mechanism This strategy that takes advantage of existing tolerance between the mother and fetus during pregnancy, so that maternal cells can be transplanted into a fetus without conditioning or immunosuppression. Survivors of alpha thalassemia need chronic blood transfusions […]

Stem Cell Gene Therapy for HIV Mediated by Lentivector Transduced, Pre-selected CD34+ Cells in AIDS lymphoma patients

Therapeutic Candidate or Device HSC gene modified by a lentiviral vector which encodes a triple combination of HIV-resistance genes and a pre-selective marker. Indication HIV in AIDS-lymphoma patients. Therapeutic Mechanism Bone marrow transplants are standard of care for AIDS-lymphoma patients providing a cure for the patient's lymphoma. A purified population of triple combination anti-HIV lentiviral […]

A Phase I/II, Non Randomized, Multicenter, Open-Label Study of G1XCGD (Lentiviral Vector Transduced CD34+ Cells) in Patients With X-Linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic product candidate is autologous CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPC) transduced with the G1XCGD lentiviral vector. Indication The target indication is for the transplantation of patients with severe X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease (XCGD) lacking matched donors. Therapeutic Mechanism Transplantation and engraftment of gene-corrected autologous HSPC after reduced intensity conditioning for […]

TRX103 for prevention of GvHD in patients receiving HLA mismatched related or unrelated allogeneic HSCT for the treatment of hematologic malignancies.

Therapeutic Candidate or Device An allogenic, off the shelf, engineered regulatory T cell product that mimics the function of T regulatory Type 1 (Tr1) cells. Indication Prevention of acute and chronic Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD) in patients undergoing mismatched stem cell transplant. Therapeutic Mechanism GvHD is driven by the reaction of allogenic donor T […]

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Gene Therapy for XCGD

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells collected from X-CGD patients modified with a highly regulated lentiviral vector Indication X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease Therapeutic Mechanism Lentiviral vector (LV) modification of autologous hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) to restore physiologic gp91phox expression. We have developed a next-generation LV designed by bioinformatic-guided screening of […]

Clinical Development of a Cell Therapy for Diabetes

We are developing a stem cell-derived replacement cell therapy for insulin-requiring diabetes. Through a process known as directed differentiation, embryonic stem cells are turned into pancreatic cells in the laboratory. The pancreatic cells are loaded into a delivery device, which is essentially a small envelope made with a semi-permeable membrane, not unlike a flat tea […]

Alpha Stem Cell Clinic for the Development of Regenerative Therapies

The proposed alpha clinic will bring together an outstanding team of physician-scientists with substantial clinical trials experience including stem cell and other cellular treatments of blood diseases and others. This team will also draw on our unique regional competitive advantages derived from our history of extensive collaboration with investigators at many nearby first-class research institutions […]

UCLA-UCI Alpha Stem Cell Clinic (ASCC) Consortium

Two world renowned research universities with their regional partners will join forces to create the CIRM Alpha Stem Cell Clinic (ASCC) Consortium. We are uniquely qualified by our respective institutional knowledge and collective experience to establish best practices for the delivery of stem cell therapies and education as we combine: 1) world class state-of-the-art medical […]

The Innovation-Alpha Clinic for Cellular Therapies (I-ACT) – A Program for the Development and Delivery of Innovative Cell-based Treatments and Cures for Life-threatening Diseases.

As the largest provider of bone marrow cell transplants in California, and the second largest in the nation, our institution has great expertise and an excellent record of safety in the delivery of stem cell treatments. We now propose to create the Alpha Clinic for Cell Therapy and Innovation (ACT-I) in which new, state-of-the-art, stem […]

A Phase I/IIa Dose Escalation Safety Study of AST-OPC1 in Patients with Cervical Sensorimotor Complete Spinal Cord Injury

The proposed project is designed to assess the safety and preliminary activity of escalating doses of human embryonic stem cell derived oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs) for the treatment of spinal cord injury. OPCs have two important functions: they produce factors which stimulate the survival and growth of nerve cells after injury, and they mature in […]
