Figure 2

Graphs illustrate improvement after allogeneic umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell transplantation. Improved levels serum albumin (A) and complement 3 (C3) (B) in lupus patients refractory to other treatments. Serum levels of anti-double-stranded DNA (anti-sDNA) antibody (C) and antinuclear antibody (ANA) (D) decreased after MSC infusions. *P < 0.05 versus before mesenchymal stem cell transplantation (MSCT). Error bars mean SD values.
