Aim: To present data about the use of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in clinical practice.

Methods: Derived MSCs were given in the native or frozen form. A total of 70 MSCs doses were used in 23 patients (13 boys and 10 girls); median age was 7.0 years (range 1–18).

Results: MSC co-transplantation was performed in patients with the following diseases: ALL 4 (17%), biphenotypic acute leukemia 1 (4%), Fanconi's anemia 4 (17%), aplastic anemia 3 (13%); adrenoleukodystrophy 1 (4%), Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome 1 (4%), SCID 1 (4%); lymphohistiocytosis 2 (9%), CML 1 (4%), MDS 4 (17.4%), and osteopetrosis 1 (4%). The indications for co-transplantation of MSCs were: transplantation of HSC (in order to improve HSC engraftment and prevent GVHD) 11 (48%), chronic GVHD 2 (9%), acute GVHD 9 (39%), and HSCs transplant hypofunction in 1 case (4%). In all cases allogeneic bone marrow MSCs were used including 5 (7.1%) cases from relative donors (parents, sibling). The MSCs dose were 2, 1, 0.8 and 5.6 million per kg in 62 (88.6%), 5 (7.1%), 1 (1.4%) and 2 (2.9%) cases respectively. Ten (43%), 5 (22%), 2 (9%), 2 (9%), 1 (4%) and 1 (4%) and 2 (9%) patients received 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 11 MSCs transplantations respectively. Acute reactions during and after the MSCs infusion were not observed. Donor chimerism was studied in order to evaluate the MSCs' engraftment. In 2 patients a temporary MSCs donor chimerism was seen.

Thus, our data indicates the possibility of the clinical use of allogeneic human bone marrow MSCs, harvested under strict quality and safety control, in pediatric practice.
