PURPOSE: Pulmonary fibrosis is a lethal and progressive disorder with no effective therapies. Recent studies have shown that MSCs have immunomodulatory and tissue-protective properties that allow them to manipulate the local environment of the injured tissue, ameliorating the inflammation and promoting repair. However, the mechanisms for anti-fibrosis are still not fully understood.
