Culture procedures are presented that support the initiation and controlled expansion of the multipotent adult progenitor cell (MAPC) population within the human bone marrow derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cell compartment. Culture procedures or conditions and characterization assays that maintain and survey the distinctive primitive MAPC properties(More)
There are accumulating studies that report a neurogenic potential of bone marrow-derived cells both in vitro as well as in vivo. Most claims of neural "transdifferentiation" have based their conclusions on morphology and neural gene expression. Recently, doubts have been raised about the validity of both outcome parameters since non-neural cells can extend(More)
Stem cell-based therapies are currently widely explored as a tool to treat neuroimmune diseases. Multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPC) have been suggested to have strong immunomodulatory and neuroprotective properties in several experimental models. In this study, we investigate whether MAPC are of therapeutic interest for neuroinflammatory disorders(More)
UNLABELLED Therapeutic benefit of stem cells has been demonstrated in multiple disease models and clinical trials. Robust quality assurance is imperative to make advancements in culturing procedures to enable large-scale cell manufacturing without hampering therapeutic potency. MicroRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) are shown to be master regulators of biological(More)
