Umbilical Cord Stem Cells Help Limit Inflammation in Mice

Stem cells found in human umbilical cords limited lung damage associated with pulmonary fibrosis (PF) by reducing an excessive inflammatory immune response, a recent study of mice has found. Understanding how these stem cells interact with the immune system could improve future PF cell therapies, the researchers noted. The study, “Human umbilical cord mesenchymal stromal cells attenuate pulmonary fibrosis via regulatory T cell through interaction with macrophage,” was published in the journal Stem Cell Research…
