Additionally, an increase in the antigen presenting abilities to allogeneically
naive or syngeneically primed T lymphocytes was also noted.
In the fetus, this is required to avoid allogeneically
induced miscarriage (Mellor et al.
Bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs) show merits in that they can be allogeneically
or autologously transplanted without raising ethical or immunological problems.
Human UBSCs as with stem cells from other sources have been used allogeneically
on the basis of their reputed immunomodulatory properties [84, 88].
For instance, bone marrow and adipose-derived undifferentiated MSCs have revealed positive outcomes when these cells were allogeneically
transplanted in neurologically injured rats, rabbits, and dogs [2, 9-11, 18-20, 22, 23].
