Principal investigator Fernando de la Portilla, Dr.
Description In the phase of recruitment, of 20 months of duration, there will be included 16 participants who will be randomized to one of the groups of intervention (8 patients group CMMAd / 8 patients group placebo). The phase of follow-up of every patient will be 12 months, though, provided that these patients are seen regularly in the study sites of the study, once concluded his follow-up will be continued to be able to obtain safety information and efficacy to 24 months.
