A new study in Cell Stem Cell has found that infusing mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) appeared to control autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, and others. The infusion of MSC calmed the overactive immune cells, such as T- and B-lymphocytes, by suppressing production and function. The research was performed in both a mouse model and a pilot study in China with patients suffering from systemic sclerosis. Similar benefits were seen in both studies.
