Diabetic peripheral neuropathy causes significant pain to patients. Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to be useful in the treatment of diabetes and its complications. The aim of this study was to investigate whether human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells treated with interferon-gamma can ameliorate nerve injury associated with diabetes better than human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells without interferon-gamma treatment.
