Concise review: Mesenchymal stem cell treatment for ischemic kidney disease *

Ischemic kidney diseases are common clinical entities that bear high mortality and morbidity and may lead to irreversible loss of kidney function. Their pathophysiology is multifaceted, involves complex hormonal-immunological-cellular interactions, and leads to damage in multiple cell types, which is often resistant to conventional therapy. Thus, novel strategies are needed to repair the renal parenchyma and preserve kidney function. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) confer renal protection through paracrine/endocrine effects and to some degree possibly by direct engraftment. Their anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory properties target multiple cascades in the mechanisms of ischemic kidney disease. This review focuses on recent progress on the use of MSC to prevent kidney injury in ischemic kidney injury, with a focus on the chronic form. Stem Cells 2013;31:1731-1736

Comments by Dr. Calapai


Kidney disease is a common and difficult to treat series of conditions. They typically stem from age related degeneration of the tissues.
A variety of medications are used to try to halt or slow damage , but are often ineffective.
Stem Cell therapy , as has been shown with a variety of different degenerative disorders, has shown great benefit in the realm of repairing degeneration. Here is another interesting commentary on the benefits of stem cell therapy
