Mesenchymal stem cells secretome as a modulator of the neurogenic niche: basic insights and therapeutic opportunities
Neural stem cells (NSCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) share few characteristics apart from self-renewal and multipotency. In fact, the neurogenic and osteogenic stem cell niches derive from twoExpand
