Objective: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which possess immunosuppressive characteristics on induced T-cells, were shown to be applicable in prevention and treatment of graft-versus-host disease. However, knowledge of effective cell sources is still limited. In this study, MSCs from different human tissues, i.e. bone marrow (BM), Wharton's jelly (WJ), and adipose tissue, were isolated, and the immune suppression of stimulated T cells was analyzed comparatively.
