Microgel-coated Cells Reverse Established PF in Mice

Scientists found that mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) — cells that have similar properties to stem cells — individually coated with a soft microgel were able to reverse established lung tissue scarring in a mouse model of pulmonary fibrosis.  Their findings were reported in the study, “Inhibition of aberrant tissue remodelling by mesenchymal stromal cells singly coated with soft gels presenting defined chemomechanical cues,” published in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.  Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a…
