Treating Pulmonary Fibrosis with Stem Cells

Posted by on Jun 3, 2016 3:30:00 PM

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been found to aid in the treatment of autoimmune-related lung fibrosis. Interstitial pneumonia is the inflammation of alveoli, and affects patients with pulmonary fibrosis and other connective tissue diseases. Increased fibrosis is due to an overactive immune response--mainly cytotoxic T cells. Past therapies have tried to suppress all immune cells to lower pro-fibrotic molecules. Mesenchymal stem cells are able to selectively change the composition of T cells from cytotoxic to regulatory. Bone marrow derived stem cells interfered with overactive autoimmune processes, and promoted the repair of alveoli tissue.

Systemic Sclerosis Sufferers Get Relief With Mesenchymal Stem Cell Treatment

Posted by on Aug 17, 2015 11:30:00 AM

A team of Italian researchers have injected autologous [the patient’s own] mesenchymal stem cells [MSCs] into patients suffering from digital ulcers (DU). The ulcers are brought about by systemic sclerosis (SSc), a connective tissue disease that progressively degrades blood vessels, causing havoc across multiple organ systems. DUs are slow to heal and are often unresponsive to therapies in individuals with SSc.
