Back pain and intervertebral disc degeneration have growing socioeconomic/health care impacts. Increasing research efforts address use of stem and progenitor cell-based replacement therapies to repopulate and regenerate the disc. Data presented here on the innate human annulus progenitor cells: (i) assessed osteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic potentials… CONTINUE READING
