OBJECTIVE To review the research progress of the current methods of inducing bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) to chondrogenic differentiation in vitro so as to provide references for researches in cartilage tissue engineering. METHODS Various methods of inducing BMSCs differentiation into the chondrogenic lineage in vitro in recent years were extensively reviewed and analyzed. RESULTS Adding exogenous growth factors is still the mainly method of inducing BMSCs differentiation into… CONTINUE READING
