Clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of the intra-discal injection of BM-MSC in subjects with chronic low back pain due to degenerative lumbar disc disease that do not respond to conventional therapy.


Phase II-III, multicentre, double-blind, controlled and randomized clinical trial. 112 adult patients with DDD are included.

The visual analogue scale (VAS) and the functional status (according to the Oswestry Disability Index – ODI) will be evaluated 12 months after treatment. Responders are defined as subjects with an improvement of VAS for pain of at least 20% and 20 mm between the beginning and month 12, or with an ODI improvement of 20% between the beginning and month 12.
