Human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) are increasingly used in regenerative medicine for restoring worn-out or damaged tissue. Newly engineered tissues need to be properly vascularized and current candidates for in vitro tissue pre-vascularization are endothelial cells and endothelial progenitor cells. However, their use in therapy is hampered by their(More)
While subcutaneous tissue has been proposed as a clinically relevant site for pancreatic islet transplantation, a major issue of concern remains, which is its poor vascular state. In an effort to overcome this limitation, we present an efficient and reproducible method to form human composite islets (CIs) with proangiogenic cell types in a controlled manner(More)
