Mesenchymal stem cells directly suppress ongoing immune responses. Through production of toleragenic cytokines, inhibition of lymphocyte proliferation, delivery of reparative and protective signals after reperfusion injury, and facilitation of hematopoietic chimerism, these cells demonstrate a wide-ranging potential for the development of multifaceted toleragenic strategies after transplantation.
