    Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have been used to improve engraftment and to treat graft versus host disease following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. However, oxidative stress presented in the microenvironment can damage the transplanted hMSCs and therefore reduce their...
