Mesenchymal stem cells regulate airway contractile tissue remodeling in murine experimental asthma

BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stem cells may offer therapeutic potential for asthma due to their immunomodulatory properties and host tolerability, yet prior evidence suggests that bloodborne progenitor cells may participate in airway remodeling. Here, we tested whether mesenchymal stem cells administered as anti-inflammatory therapy may favor airway remodeling… CONTINUE READING
