M esenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been reported to have homing capacities and immunomodulating effects in vitro . However, there are no reports on their effect on the animal?s hematological status. Therefore, MSCs were isolated and characterized from a 4-years-old donor horse after having tested his blood on a wide range of transmittable diseases. Then, 6 elderly horses (13- to 15-years-old) received a single injection into the jugular vein (3 treated + 3 control). Multiple blood samples were taken at different time points at the same time of the day: 1 week before and immediately before the intravenous MSCs (Veno-Cell?) injection (the average = T 0 ) and 1 day (T 1 ), 1 week (T 2 ), 3 weeks (T 3 ) and 2 months (T 4 ) after the treatment. In all the patients, same changes were noticed in their blood after the injection: thrombocytes and cortisol values significantly increased; glucose and insulin-like growth factor type-I (IGF-I) significantly decreased. At T 2 , thrombocytes and glucose levels were normalized, however, the IGF-I level was still decreased and at this time point insulin level decreased as well. The rise in cortisol remained significantly evident for 2 more months. The present study is the first to report the influence of allogenic MSCs on different hematological parameters in horses
