Characterization of the apical papilla and its residing stem cells from human immature permanent teeth: a pilot study.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been isolated from the pulp tissue of permanent teeth (dental pulp stem cells or DPSCs) and deciduous teeth (stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth). WeExpand

The hidden treasure in apical papilla: the potential role in pulp/dentin regeneration and bioroot engineering.
Some clinical case reports have shown that immature permanent teeth with periradicular periodontitis or abscess can undergo apexogenesis after conservative endodontic treatment. A call for a paradigmExpand

Vitamin C treatment promotes mesenchymal stem cell sheet formation and tissue regeneration by elevating telomerase activity
Cell sheet engineering has been developed as an alternative approach to improve mesenchymal stem cell‐mediated tissue regeneration. In this study, we found that vitamin C (Vc) was capable of inducingExpand

Allogeneic mesenchymal stem cell treatment alleviates experimental and clinical Sjögren syndrome.
Sjögren syndrome (SS) is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by dry mouth and eyes, and the cellular and molecular mechanisms for its pathogenesis are complex. Here we reveal, for the firstExpand

Allogeneic Periodontal Ligament Stem Cell Therapy for Periodontitis in Swine
Periodontitis is one of the most widespread infectious diseases in humans. It is the main cause of tooth loss and associated with a number of systemic diseases. Until now, there is no appropriateExpand
