Background: Autoimmune disease is a refractory disease. Accumulating Evidence has revealed that the manipulation of mesenchymal stem cells may have the potential to control or even treat autoimmune diseases. Human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) are emerging as a new line of mesenchymal stem cells that have displayed some potential advantages in controlling and treating autoimmune diseases.

Objective: In this review, we briefly update the current understanding on the biology of GMSCs and their effects on preventing and treating autoimmune diseases.

Conclusion: The availability of gingival mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs), together with their potent capacity of multi-directional differentiation and inflammatory modulation, making GMSCs an ideal subtype of MSCs in treating autoimmune disease. Our and other studies have launched the earliest appraisal on GMSCs and carried out a lot of biological researches. The clinical trial of GMSCs on patients with autoimmune diseases will further approve their therapeutic effects, as well as its cellular and molecular mechanisms.

Keywords: Autoimmune diseases, mesenchymal stem cells, human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells, bone marrowderived mesenchymal stem cells, cell therapy.
