Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can inhibit T cell proliferation; however, the underlying mechanisms are not clear. In this study, we investigated the mechanisms of the immunoregulatory activity of MSCs on T cells. Irradiated MSCs co-cultured with either na?ve or pre-activated...

Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 immunoglobulin (CTLA4Ig) and anti-cluster of differentiation 154 (anti-CD154) are able to block B7/CD28 and CD40/CD154 co-stimulatory signals in T cells. Additionally, they promote hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in sensitized recipients and are able to induce...

Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) possess numerous regenerative and immune modulating functions. Transplantation across histocompatibility barriers is feasible due to their hypo-immunogenicity. MSCs have emerged as promising tools for treating graft-versus-host disease following allogeneic stem cell transplantation. It is well established...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are, due to immunomodulatory characteristics, considered as novel agents in the treatment of immune-mediated acute liver failure. Although it is known that MSCs can regulate activation of T lymphocytes, their capacity to modulate function of neutrophils...
Motivational changes that develop in a mouse model of inflammation-induced depression are independent of indoleamine 2, 3 dioxygenase.
