Umbilical Cord Stem Cells Hold Potential in PF Treatment

Small extracellular vesicles (EVs) released from umbilical cord stem cells seem to carry molecules that can inhibit the TGF-beta signaling pathway and reduce tissue damage in the lungs of mice with pulmonary fibrosis (PF), a study shows. The findings support further research on stem cell-derived EVs as a potential treatment for PF. The study, “Extracellular vesicles derived from umbilical cord mesenchymal stromal cells alleviate pulmonary fibrosis by means of transforming growth factor-β signaling inhibition,” was…
