Cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cell does not stimulate nor inhibits T lymphocytes activation.

Abstract

The immune modulatory properties of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) had brought a new insight in cell-based neotherapy. However, recent works of MSC are focused exclusively on bone marrow-derived MSC. We evaluated the immunogenicity of cord blood-derived MSC (CB-MSC) on T lymphocytes. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were prepared by density gradient separation and culture with the presence or absence of CB-MSC. PBMC were collected for activation analysis by flow cytometry at 24-, 48-, and 72- hours. The results showed that, CB-MSC does not stimulate nor inhibit T lymphocyte activation.
