    3. Participants with established positive bacterial blood cultures prior to enrollment or suspicion of superimposed bacterial pneumonia
    4. Those with untreated HIV infection
    5. Participants who have been intubated for more than 72 hours
    6. Known hypersensitivity to DMSO or to porcine or bovine proteins
    7. History of prior respiratory disease with requirement for supplemental oxygen
    8. Any end-stage organ disease which in the opinion of the investigator may possibly affect the safety of remestemcel-L treatment
    9. Receiving an investigational cellular therapy agent
