Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) isolated from human term placental tissues possess unique characteristics, including their peculiar immunomodulatory properties and their multilineage differentiation potential. The osteogenic differentiation capacity of placental MSC has been widely disputed, and continues to be an issue of debate. This review will briefly(More)
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are released from almost all cells and tissues. They are able to transport substances (e.g. proteins, RNA or DNA) at higher concentrations than in their environment and may adhere in a receptor-controlled manner to specific cells or tissues in order to release their content into the respective target structure. Blood contains(More)
A novel functionally-graded hybrid (FGHY) scaffold was designed and developed with a load-bearing structure represented by a PU foam loaded with a graded composition of CaPs (biomimetic component) and pectin gel as cell carrier. hPDC populations encapsulated in pectin gels and injected into the FGHY scaffolds demonstrated the ability to differentiate toward(More)
