Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have emerged as a therapeutic approach in a range of medical fields, including regenerative medicine, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and inflammatory diseases, because of their unique properties of tissue repair and major histocompatibility complex-unmatched immunosuppression. Because both in vitro and in vivo findings(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered to be an ideal cellular source for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) treatment due to their unique properties, including tissue repair and major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-unmatched immunosuppression. However, preclinical and clinical data have suggested that the immunomodulatory activity of MSCs is(More)
Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are seen as an ideal source of cells to induce graft acceptance; however, some reports have shown that MSCs can be immunogenic rather than immunosuppressive. We speculate that the immunomodulatory effects of regulatory T cells (Tregs) can aid the maintenance of immunoregulatory functions of MSCs, and that a combinatorial(More)
Maintaining an appropriate balance between subsets of CD4(+) helper T cells and T regulatory cells (Tregs) is a critical process in immune homeostasis and a protective mechanism against autoimmunity and inflammation. To identify the role of vitamin A-related compounds, we investigated the regulation of interleukin (IL)-17-producing helper T cells (Th17(More)
