Mesenchymal stem cells enhance lung recovery after injury, shock, and chronic stress.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Normal lung healing is impaired when lung contusion (LC) is followed by hemorrhagic shock (HS), and chronic stress (CS). Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are immunomodulatory, pluripotent cells that are under investigation for use in wound healing and tissue regeneration. We hypothesized that treatment with MSCs can reverse the impaired healing seen… (More)
