Abstract

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells derived from chorionic villi of human term placentae (pMSCs) protect human endothelial cells from injury induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). In diabetes, elevated levels of glucose (hyperglycaemia) induce H2O2 production, which causes the endothelial dysfunction that underlies the enhanced immune responses and adverse complications associated with diabetes, which leads to thrombosis and atherosclerosis. In this study, we examined the ability of pMSCs to protect endothelial cell functions from the negative impact of high level of glucose. METHODS: pMSCs isolated from the chorionic villi of human term placentae were cultured with endothelial cells is..
