Why is it important?

Our review showed that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-based therapy has been widely used for treatment of ARDS patients. Thus, according to the similar mechanism, MSC-based therapy should be a promising approach for COVID-19 patients.


Writing this article is to increase the understanding of COVID-19 treatments for peers and people in other fields, as the outbreak of COVID-19 has brought trauma to many people's life more or less. I hope this article will help you to have a deeper understanding of this novel infectious disease.
