BACKGROUND AIMS Emerging evidence suggests human placental membrane is a valuable source of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC). Amnion and chorion are tissues of early embryologic origin that may entail progenitor potential. These tissues are abundantly available and ethically unobjectionable and, because they are discarded post-partum, they can be widely used(More)
Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are considered to be a promising source of cells in regenerative medicine. They have large potential to differentiate into various tissue-specific populations and may be isolated from diverse tissues in desired quantities. As cells of potential autologous origin, they allow recipients to avoid the alloantigen responses.(More)
BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) in the pancreatic microenvironment can improve diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of the present study was to determine whether different pancreatic microenvironments influence the improvement of hyperglycemia and insulin deficiency. METHODS MSCs isolated from rat bone marrow were transplanted directly into(More)
Cartilage tissue engineering can provide substantial relief to people suffering from degenerative cartilage disease, such as osteoarthritis. The autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application appears to improve cartilage healing due to its ability to positively influence cellular mechanisms, mainly in cells from synovium and cartilage. Primary cultures(More)
