It has been established in the recent several decades that adult stem cells play a crucial role in tissue renewal and regeneration. Adult stem cells locate in certain organs can differentiate into functional entities such as macrophages and bone cells. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are two of the most important populations of adult stem cells. The application of these stem cells offers a new insight in treating various pathological conditions, through… 
A Review on the Effect of Plant Extract on Mesenchymal Stem Cell Proliferation and Differentiation
TLDR
The present review article is aimed at highlighting the roles and consequences of plant extracts on MSCs proliferation and desired lineage differentiations.
Characteristics of stem cells derived from rat fascia: in vitro proliferative and multilineage potential assessment.
TLDR
FDSCs possessed high chondrogenic potential, low osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation potential and were responsive to the induction signals for collagen‑rich fascial structure regeneration, suggesting that FDSCs may represent an improved alternative cell source to conventional ADSCs and BMSCs for musculoskeletal tissue repair and tissue engineering.
Stem cells and regenerative medicine - future perspectives.
TLDR
A brief history of stem cell research as it transitioned from the 20th to the 21st century is discussed and lessons learned in the first decade of the new millennium are addressed to help guide others to translate research into therapy across disciplines.
Osthole improves therapy for osteoporosis through increasing autophagy of mesenchymal stem cells
TLDR
It is concluded that OBMMSCs are more effective than BMMSCs in osteoporosis treatment maybe through upregulation level of autophagy level induced by osthole.
Cyasterone accelerates fracture healing by promoting MSCs migration and osteogenesis

TLDR
While it is expected that cellular medicines will decrease the burden of several age‐related diseases, it is not clear whether they can change the course of the aging process itself and thus prolong human life.
Phenotypes of stem cells from diverse origin
TLDR
This review reports stem cell marker expression used for identification of various stem cell lineages, including very small embryonic stem cells, neural, hematopoietic, mesenchymal, epithelial and limbal epithelialstem cells, endothelial progenitor cells, supra‐adventitial adipose stromal cells, adipose pericytes, and cancer stem cells.
Mesenchymal Stromal Cells: Current Understanding and Clinical Status
TLDR
This review highlights the current understanding into the biology of MSCs with particular emphasis on the cardiovascular and renal applications, and provides a brief update on the clinical status of M SC‐based therapy.
Trafficking and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells
TLDR
Current knowledge on the signals that control trafficking and differentiation of MSCs are summarized to make these cells very interesting targets for potential therapeutic use in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.
Perspectives on mesenchymal stem cells: Tissue repair, immune modulation, and tumor homing
TLDR
MSCs’ basic cell biology and perspectives on MSCs in terms of tissue repair, immune modulation, and tumor homing are discussed.
Mesenchymal stem cells: isolation, in vitro expansion and characterization.
TLDR
Isolation and culture conditions used to expand these cells rely on the ability of MSCs, although variable, to adhere to plastic surfaces, and whether these conditions selectively favor the expansion of different bone marrow precursors or cause similar cell populations to acquire different phenotypes is not clear.
Mesenchymal stem cells in bone development, bone repair, and skeletal regenaration therapy
TLDR
The isolation and in vitro mitotic expansion of autologous human MSCs will support the development of novel protocols for the treatment of many clinically challenging conditions, and can begin to explore therapeutic options that have never before been available.
Stem cells and regenerative medicine - future perspectives.
TLDR
A brief history of stem cell research as it transitioned from the 20th to the 21st century is discussed and lessons learned in the first decade of the new millennium are addressed to help guide others to translate research into therapy across disciplines.

TLDR
Mesenchymal stromal cells are a biologically important cell population that are able to support hematopoiesis, are capable of suppressing alloresponses and appear to be nonimmunogenic.
Adult bone marrow stem cells for cell and gene therapies: Implications for greater use
TLDR
There is mounting evidence these cells may be useful, if not as true stem cells then at least as vehicles for emerging cell and gene therapies, especially in the field of tissue engineering.
