OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rat umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs) from Wharton's jelly on dibutyltin dichloride (DBTC)-induced chronic pancreatitis (CP) and subsequent pancreatic fibrosis in rats. METHODS A rat model of CP induced by DBTC was used. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 4 groups: the control, DBTC, DBTC + UCMSCs, and control + UCMSC groups. Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells were administered… CONTINUE READING
