BACKGROUND Tissue engineering using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is a recent therapeutic modality that has several advantages. MSCs have high proliferation potential and may be manipulated to permit differentiation before being transplanted, suggesting they may be an ideal candidate for regenerative procedures. Precise identification of cells capable of regenerating the periodontium is valuable because no predictable regeneration procedure has yet been described. The purpose of this study is… CONTINUE READING
