The current study explored the efficacy of an intra-articular (IA) injection of allogeneic adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) combined with xanthan gum (XG) in a rat osteoarthritis (OA) model. We confirmed that XG significantly inproved proliferation of ADSCs in a dose dependent manner in vitro. The rat OA model was induced by an anterior cruciate… CONTINUE READING
