BACKGROUND AIMS: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs) on severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) in rats.
METHODS: SAP was established in rats by retrograde pancreatic duct injection of sodium taurocholate. In one group, 5 × 10(6) cells/kg of UCMSC suspension was injected into the tail vein 0 h, 1 h, 6 h and 12 h after the induction of SAP. In other groups, different doses of UCMSC suspension (5 × 10(4) cells/kg, 5 × 10(5) cells/kg, 5 × 10(6) cells/kg or 1 × 10(7) cells/kg) were administered at 1 h. Serum amylase was assayed at 12 h. Mortality, ascites, serum tumor necrosis factor-α, interferon-γ (assayed using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and the wet-dry weight of the pancreas gland were assessed at 48 h. Pathologic changes of pancreatic and pulmonary tissues were observed.
RESULTS: Mortality in rats receiving 5 × 10(6) cells/kg of UCMSCs at 0 h was 10% compared with 58% in the SAP control group. Ascites, serum amylase and wet-dry pancreatic weight significantly decreased, and production of tumor necrosis factor-α and interferon-γ were reduced. Pathologic injuries of pancreatic and pulmonary tissues were markedly alleviated. Administration of UCMSCs (5 × 10(5) cells/kg, 5 × 10(6) cells/kg or 1 × 10(7) cells/kg) at 1 h or 5 × 10(6) cells/kg at 6 h significantly reduced the severity of SAP. The effect was less marked at 12 h and with lower concentrations of UCMSCs.
CONCLUSIONS: UCMSCs significantly decreased pancreatic injury caused by SAP in a time-dependent and dose-dependent way.
