Mesenchymal stem cells regulate M1 polarization of peritoneal macrophages through the CARD9-NF-κB signaling pathway in severe acute pancreatitis.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Sci 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Songjiang Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine (Preparatory Stage), China.

Macrophages release large numbers of proinflammatory cytokines that trigger inflammatory cascade reactions, which promote the rapid development of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) from local to systemic inflammation. The ability of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to suppress inflammation is related to inhibition of M1 polarization of macrophages. Our previous studies revealed that caspase recruitment domain protein 9 (CARD9) was involved in SAP inflammation and activation of the CARD9-NF-κB signaling pathway plays an important pro-inflammatory role in SAP.
