Prevention of LPS-induced acute lung injury in mice by mesenchymal stem cells overexpressing angiopoietin 1

Using a mouse model of acute respiratory distress syndrome, Duncan Stewart and colleagues report that rescue with mesenchymal stem cells expressing human angiopoietin 1 can avert lung injury from lipopolysaccharide.
