Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy?
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are ideal for cell-based therapy in several inflammatory diseases due to its tissue repair and immunosuppressive properties. The low immunogenicity and their immunosuppressive properties add to a reduced or weakened immune response drawn by the implantation of allergenic MSCs compared with other cell types. To enhance the efficacy of MSCs when used as a cell-based therapy for tissue repair and inflammatory diseases, further investigations are required.
MSCs are classified into various groups according to cell source. They are:
Bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs)
Adipose-derived MSCs (ASCs) and
Umbilical cord MSCs
