Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cell-Derived Extracellular Vesicles Elicit Better Preservation of the Intra-Renal Microvasculature Than Renal Revascularization in Pigs with Renovascular Disease

Five groups of pigs were studied after 16 weeks of renovascular disease (RVD), RVD treated four weeks earlier with either percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty or MSC-derived extracellular vesicles, and normal controls.

C3G Downregulation Induces the Acquisition of a Mesenchymal Phenotype That Enhances Aggressiveness of Glioblastoma Cells

The authors report that C3G downregulation promoted the acquisition of a more mesenchymal phenotype that enhanced the migratory and invasive capacity of glioblastoma cells.

Exosome-Eluting Stents for Vascular Healing after Ischemic Injury

The authors showed that stents releasing exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem cells in the presence of reactive oxygen species enhance vascular healing in rats with renal ischemia-reperfusion injury, promoting endothelial cell tube formation and proliferation, and impairing the migration of smooth muscle cells.

Autophagy-Mediated Activation of Mucosal-Associated Invariant T Cells Driven by Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Derived IL-15

Investigators found that MSCs did not influence the proliferation of mucosal-associated invariant (TMAIT) cells but strikingly induced an activated phenotype with an increased expression of CD69, TNF-α, IFN-γ, and granzyme B.

A Composite Scaffold of Wharton’s Jelly and Chondroitin Sulphate Loaded with Human Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells Repairs Articular Cartilage Defects in Rat Knee

In vitro experiments involved identification of the human umbilical cord MSCs, construction of the biomimetic composite scaffolds by the physical and chemical crosslinking of Wharton’s jelly (WJ) and chondroitin sulfate, and testing of the biomechanical properties of both the composite scaffold and the WJ scaffold.
