Detailed Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells in 10 patients with bronchopulmonary dysplasia at Vinmec International Hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam


  • Combination Product: stem cell transplantation
    • Transplantation of umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Stem cell transplantation
    • 1 million umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells per body kg will transplant via the intravenous at baseline, and the second transplantation will be performed 1 week after the first transplantation

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Adverse events and serious adverse events
    • Time Frame: during 9 months post treatment
    • Incidence of the adverse events or serious adverse events after transplantation
  • The proportion of patients win from oxygen
    • Time Frame: during 9 months post treatment
    • To identify the proportion of patient with Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia win from oxygen after stem cell transplantation.

Secondary Measures

  • The lung fibrosis
    • Time Frame: at 6 months post treatment
    • Changes of the lung fibrosis on chest CT at 6 months compared with baseline
