REGENER-AR (Bringing Regenerative Medicine into the market: Allogeneic eASCs Phase IB/IIA clinical trial for treating Rheumatoid Arthritis) is a clinical translational collaborative project which aims at developing a broadly available and clinically applicable treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) by exploiting the biology of living human expanded allogeneic mesenchymal adult stem cells extracted form adipose tissue (eASCs).

To accomplish this goal we will test advanced cellular therapy through a phase Ib/IIb clinical trial in order to define the safety and feasibility of the systemic administration of allogeneic eASCs in patients with RA. We will also advance in the difficulties and barriers that prevent cell therapy to become a largely available product in the market by facing several issues related to the production scale-up, effective clinical treatment and regulatory affairs compliance.
