Abstract: Recent studies have shown that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have immunomodulatory properties and tissue repairing potential. In the process of acute pancreatitis, MSCs suppress T cells and B cells and many kinds of inflammatory factors, and home to injuried pancreas to promote pancreatic tissue repairing. MSCs play an important role in pathophysiolgical progresses of acute pancreatitis. The review is on the effect of MSCs on acute pancreatitis.

Key words: mesenchymal stem cells, acute pancreatitis, immunomodulation, repair
