Abstract

The present study was designed to investigate the effect of adipose‑derived stem cells (ADSCs) on acute graft vs. host disease (aGVHD) and hematopoietic recovery after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. ADSCs, bone marrow‑derived stem cells (BMSCs) and fibroblasts were cultured. ADSCs were cocultured with hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. Then, ADSCs were infused into the aGVHD rat model. The survival of the rats was recorded. Livers and small intestines were obtained from sacrificed rats for pathological examinations. Expression of the Sry gene in recipient rats that survived longer than 21 days was examined by real‑time PCR to detect the presence of donor Y chromosome. Expression of serum interferon (INF)‑γ and interleukin (IL)‑4 was detected by ELISA at 0, 7, 14, 21 and 50 days after transplantation. Transplantation of ADSCs improved the survival of aGVHD rats. Survived ADSCs participated in hematopoietic reconstitution in aGVHD rats. ADSCs decreased aGVHD severity by immunomodulation. ADSCs support the proliferation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells in vitro. The present study demonstrated that ADSCs may reduce aGVHD by influencing the balance of IL‑4 and INF‑γ and can promote long‑term hematopoiesis.
