Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent non-hematopoietic progenitor cells able to differentiate into multiple lineages, holding the potential for replacing damaged and diseased tissues by tissue regeneration and immunodulatory functions. So far, MSCs have been successfully isolated and characterized from a variety of orofacial tissues, including dental pulp, periodontal ligament, root apical papilla, gingiva, etc. In addition to their self-renewal and multipotent differentiation… CONTINUE READING
