Therapeutic effect of human amniotic membrane-derived cells on experimental arthritis and other inflammatory disorders.

Author information Parolini O1, Souza-Moreira L, O’Valle F, Magatti M, Hernandez-Cortes P, Gonzalez-Rey E, Delgado M. Abstract OBJECTIVE: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease caused by loss of immunologic self tolerance and characterized by chronic joint inflammation. Cells isolated from human amniotic membrane (HAMCs) were recently found to display immunosuppressive properties. The aim of
