Mesenchymal stem cells fight against inflammation and sepsis.

This study hypothesized that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which have been shown to have immunomodulatory properties, would reduce sepsis-induced inflammation and improve survival in a polymicrobial model of sepsis. Their data demonstrate that MSCs have beneficial effects on experimental sepsis, and suggest that immunomodulatory cell therapy may be an effective adjunctive treatment to reduce sepsis-related morbidity and mortality.
