Therapeutic potential of products derived from mesenchymal stem/stromal cells in pulmonarydisease
The increasingly high rates of morbidity and mortality due to acute and chronic lung diseases have emerged as one of the major public health issues globally.
Health relevance of the modification of low grade inflammation in ageing (inflammageing) and therole of nutrition
Ageing is characterised by an increase in the concentration of inflammatory markers in the bloodstream, a phenomenon that has been termed “inflammageing”. The inflammatory response is beneficial as an acute, transient reaction to harmful conditions, facilitating the defence, repair, turnover and adaptation of many tissues. However, chronic and low grade inflammation is likely to be detrimental for many tissues and for normal functions.
Mesenchymal stem cells in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a major cause of respiratory failure in critically ill patients and common outcome of various lung interstitial diseases.

Autologous Stromal Vascular Fraction inthe Intravenous Treatment of End-StageChronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease:A Phase I Trial of Safety and Tolerability
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a consistently progressive, ultimately fatal disease for which no treat- ment exists capable of either reversing or even interrupting its course.
Effects of different mesenchymal stromalcell sources and delivery routes inexperimental emphysema
We sought to assess whether the effects of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) on lung inflammation and remodeling in experimental emphysema would differ according to MSC source and administration route.
Mesenchymal stromal cell infusionmodulates systemic immunologicalresponses in stable COPD patients:A phase I pilot study
COPD is characterised by tissue destruction and inflammation. Given the lack of curative treatments and the progressive nature of the disease, new treatments for COPD are highly relevant.
Combined Bone Marrow‐Derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cell Therapy and One‐Way Endobronchial Valve Placementin Patients with Pulmonary Emphysema:A Phase I Clinical Trial
One‐way endobronchial valves (EBV) insertion to reduce pulmonary air trapping has been used as therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.
Transplantation of adipose-derived mesenchymalstem cells attenuates pulmonary fibrosis of silicosisvia anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptosis effects inrats
Silicosis has been topping the list of high-incidence occupational diseases in developing countries and cannot be completely cured.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy of PulmonaryFibrosis: Improvement with Target Combination
Although the clinical application of new drugs has been shown to be effective in slowing disease progression and improving the quality of life in patients with pulmonary fibrosis, the damaged lung tissue does not recover with these drugs.
Clinical applications of mesenchymalstem cells in chronic lung diseases.
Mesenchymal stem (stromal) cells (MSCs) are multipotent stromal cells that have the ability to modulate immune response to tissue injury and promote repair in vivo.
