Human stromal progenitor cells for immunomodulation and tissue repair

2nd International Conference on Tissue Science & Regenerative Medicine

Symposium: J Tissue Sci Eng

DOI: 10.4172/2157-7552.S1.010

Abstract
B one marrow derived marrow stromal cells (mscs) possess a set of several fairly unique properties which make them ideally suited both for cellular therapies/regenerative medicine, and as vehicles for gene and drug delivery. These cells are easy to isolate, can be extensively expanded in culture without a loss of differentiativecapacity, they migrate to areas of injury, and have immunomodulatory properties. However, mscs are not invisible to the recipient's immune system, and upon in vivo administration, allogeneic mscs are able to trigger immune responses, resulting in rejection of the transplanted cells, precluding their full therapeutic potential. Here we will describe the development of immunological evasion strategies to reduce mscs immunogenicity allowing higher levels of engraftment in an allogeneic transplantation setting
