Several ongoing investigations have been founded on the development of an optimized therapeutic strategy for the COVID-19 virus as an undeniable acute challenge for human life. Cell-based therapy and particularly, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) therapy has obtained desired outcomes in decreasing the mortality rate of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2), mainly owing to its immunoregulatory impact that prevents the overactivation of the immune system. Also, these cells with their multipotent nature, are capable of repairing the damaged tissue of the lung which leads to reducing the probability of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Although this cell-based method is not quite cost-efective for developing countries, regarding its promising results in order to treat SARS-COV-2, more economical evaluation as well as clinical trials should be performed for improving this therapeutic approach. Here in this article, the functional mechanism of MSCs therapy for the treatment of COVID-19 and the clinical trials based on this method will be reviewed. Moreover, its economic efciency will be discussed.
