Most chronic diseases involving inflammation have a fibrotic component that involves remodeling and excess accumulation of extracellular matrix components. Left unchecked, fibrosis leads to organ failure and death. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are emerging as a potent cell-based therapy for a wide spectrum of fibrotic conditions due to their immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic properties. This review provides an overview of known mechanisms by which MSCs mediate their anti-fibrotic actions and in relation to animal models of pulmonary, liver, renal and cardiac fibrosis. Recent MSC clinical trials results in liver, lung, skin, kidney and hearts are discussed and next steps for future MSC-based therapies including pre-activated or genetically-modified cells, or extracellular vesicles are also considered.
