Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Umbilical Cord blood come from healthy puerpera. Erythrocyte in umbilical cord blood was separated and deleted through sedimentation. Mononuclear cells in umbilical cord blood were then isolated with a conventional method and reagent,Ficoll,by density gradient centrifugation.
umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells
Participants will be transplanted with umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells.

Primary Outcomes

child-pugh classification
time frame: whinin 7 days before transplantation, 1,3 and 6 months after transplantation

Secondary Outcomes

time frame: whinin 7 days before transplantation, 1,3,6 months after transplantation

time frame: 1, 2 and 3 days after transplantation
incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma
time frame: 1, 3 and 6 months after transplantation
time frame: 1, 3 and 6 months after transplantation

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants from 20 years up to 80 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients with hepatocirrhosis: according to the standard of child- pugh, liver functions to achieve class A or B patients, Including C class patients but can achieve B class after treatment Exclusion Criteria: 1.

Official title Safety and Efficacy Investigation of Patients With Liver Cirrhosis by Transplantation of Umbilical Cord Blood Mononuclear Cells

Description Decompensated liver cirrhosis (LC), a life-threatening complication of chronic liver disease, is one of the major indications for liver transplantation. Recently, umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells transfusion has been shown to lead to the regression of liver fibrosis in animal model. The investigators thus investigated the safety of the therapy with life signs like temperature, pulse, blood pressure, the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma and mortality and so on. And the efficacy was evaluated with the measurement of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (AST), total bilirubin (TBIL), direct bilirubin (DBIL), albumin (ALB), cholinesterase (CHE), prothrombin time (PT) and child-pugh score.
