Study Of An Investigational Therapy Using Stem Cells For Perianal Fistulas In People With Crohn's Disease


People whose perinanal fistula resulting from crohn's disease has not healed with treatment sought for a study of an investigational therapy using stem cells.


We will compare whether injecting stem cells is more effective than an injection with no active medication (placebo) in healing fistulas.

What we're hoping for

We hope that the investigational therapy is safe, well tolerated and effective in healing fistulas
