Study of Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells &혻autoimmune diseases

We have read with great interest the article from Deng and colleagues혻reporting on the results of a randomised, controlled clinical trial of allogeneic umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) for lupus nephritis. The study demonstrated that the administration of intravenous UC-MSCs does not provide additional benefit to conventional immunosuppression.

Over the last decade, increasing evidence has indicated that UC-MSCs are multipotent cells with promising applications to regenerative medicine혻and also a powerful tool to modulate the immune system. UC-MSCs can interact with most immune cell types via both cell밹ell contact and secretion
