ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relationships between bone marrow stem cells (BMSC) and liver disease. It examines the utilization of BMSCs for therapeutic purposes and the current status of clinical trials in patients with liver disorders. According to the authors, BMSCs may support liver repair and can contribute to fibrogenesis within the liver in response to injury. Information on the potential of BMSCs in treating liver diseases are explored.
