However, the extensive(More)
Umbilical cord blood serum (UCBS) is a promising replacement for animal sera for the culture of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC), the unique serum composition of UCBS appearing to have variable effects on their proliferation and differentiation. Conditioning UCBS with methods such as charcoal stripping assists specific processes such as adipogenesis and(More)
