B-MSCs from IPF patients show a decline in their ability to differentiate. In-vitro adipose cell differentiation was induced in B-MSCs from age-matched controls (Old) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients. Cells were incubated with adipose differentiation media for 15 days, fixed, and stained with Oil Red O. Differentiation was assessed quantitatively by microscopic analysis of red pixels to measure lipid accumulation relative to the control samples; mean ± SEM; ****p ≤ 0.0001
