Multiple sclerosis (MS) causes significant neurological disability. Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an animal model of MS. Human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) possess anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. We studied whether hMSCs affect CD1d(high)CD5(+) regulatory B-cell activity in EAE.
