Allo-transplantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Attenuates Hepatic Injury through IL1Ra Dependent Macrophage Switch in a Mouse Model of Liver Disease.

Autologous transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) reduces concanavalin A (Con A)-induced hepatic injury in mice. However, the mechanism is unclear and the therapeutic effect of allo-transplantation remains unknown. Our aim was to investigate the effects and mechanisms related to allo-transplantation of MSCs when used to treat Con A hepatic injury.
