Teknon Foundation is sponsoring this clinical trial to validate the process of cryopreservation of mesenchymal stem cells produced by the Instituto de Biología Genética Molecular de Valladolid (IBGM) [Valladolid Institute for Biology and Molecular Genetics].

This trial was awarded funding by the Directorate-General for Pharmacy as part of its 2011 "Support for Independent Research" plan.

The cryopreservation process has been shown to be viable in all the preliminary in vitro studies; the hypothesis in this trial is that it does not alter the therapeutic potential and safety of use of the cells. Confirmation of the hypothesis would enable doses of cryopreserved cells to be stored for future use.
