    MSCs show particular potential because they're both anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic, Dr. Kirsner said. In one case report, injecting MSCs into a severe radiation burn at the time of surgery significantly improved scarring.14 A more recent study revealed how MSCs do this, he said. Once placed into a wound, he explained, they quickly die, releasing factors that improve scarring.15 "Work is underway to figure out exactly what those factors are. If we can identify them, maybe we don't even need the MSCs."
