      Stem Cell Therapy: The Host Response and Mode of Action The objective of Barrys work is to evaluate the therapeutic utility of postnatal stem cells in tissue repair applications and in particular the nature of the transplanted stem cell-host interaction that underlies the therapeutic mechanism of action. These approaches are based upon the foundation that neither extensive engraftment nor differentiation of the transplanted cells are prerequisites for a useful therapeutic response. A number of models of tissue repair have been assessed, including myocardial repair, joint repair in arthritis, neuronal repair and, importantly, an assessment of the stem cell-tumor interaction. Several elements of the stem cell host interaction are likely to be critical in evoking a stem cell-mediated repair response that is useful and clinically meaningful. These are likely to include trophic effects, suppression of the host immune response and mobilization of host cells, among others.
