INTRODUCTION Current mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) delivery methods require infusion/implantation through needles and/or catheters. Little investigation into the effect of delivery via catheter injection has been completed. We hypothesize that injection of rat and human MSCs through various clinically relevant-sized catheters and flow rates will not affect cell viability, characterization, or function. METHODS Both rat and human MSCs were injected through 20-, 25-, and 30-gauge needles, as… CONTINUE READING
