Future cell-based therapies such as tissue engineering will benefit from a source of autologous pluripotent stem cells. For mesodermal tissue engineering, one such source of cells is the bone marrow stroma. The bone marrow compartment contains several cell populations, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that are capable of differentiating into adipogenic, osteogenic, chondrogenic, and myogenic cells. However, autologous bone marrow procurement has potential limitations. An alternate source…

The preliminary studies have identified a putative stem cell population isolated from human adipose tissue that is found to differentiate into adipogenic, osteogenic, chondrogenic and myogenic lineage in vitro in lineage-specific culture media and suggest that human PLA have a mesodermal stemcell population.

Isolation, Characterization, and Differentiation Potential of Canine Adipose-Derived Stem Cells

Like human lipoaspirate, canine adipose tissue may also contain multipotent cells and represent an important stem cell source both for veterinary cell therapy as well as preclinical studies.

Adipose Tissue: A Novel Source of Stem Cells for Regenerative Medicine

Because human adipose tissue is plentiful and easily harvested in large quantity under the local anesthesia with less discomfort for patients it may be an alternative stem cell source for mesenchymal tissue regeneration and engineering.

Human adipose tissue is a source of multipotent stem cells.

To confirm whether adipose tissue contains stem cells, the PLA population and multiple clonal isolates were analyzed using several molecular and biochemical approaches and PLA cells exhibited unique characteristics distinct from those seen in MSCs, including differences in CD marker profile and gene expression.

High yield generation of hepatocyte like cells from adipose derived stem cells

The intent of this investigation was the isolation of mesenchymal stem cells from rat adipose tissue, the potential of MSCs in differentiating into osteogenic and adipogenic lineages, and to describe the ADSCs surface expression of the classic markers by using flow cytometric analysis, and their transformation to hepatocyte like cells.

Differentiation potential of adult human mesenchymal stem cells.

The potential benefit of the multi-germline capacity of HMSCs seems to be a promising approach for allogenic cell therapy and human tissue engineering.

Exploring the potential of human adipocytes in periodontal regeneration: A review

Human adult adipose tissue may be the best appropriate alternative source of mesenchymal stem cells and their application in periodontal regeneration is described.

Human adipose tissue is ubiquitous and easily obtainable in large quantities under local anesthesia with little patient discomfort, it may provide an alternative source of stem cells for mesenchymal tissue regeneration and engineering and the future role of adipose-derived stem cells is highlighted.

Adipose Tissue-Derived Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine

A brief overview of the possible therapeutic applications of ADSCs with regard to their differentiation potential into the tri-germ lineages is provided.

Mesengenic potential and future clinical perspective of human processed lipoaspirate cells.

Findings suggest that human PLA might have a mesodermal stem cell population, and since human adipose tissue is plentiful, easily harvested in large quantity under local anesthesia with little patient discomfort, it may be an alternative stem cell source for mesenchymal tissue regeneration and engineering.



Multilineage potential of adult human mesenchymal stem cells.

Adult stem cells isolated from marrow aspirates of volunteer donors could be induced to differentiate exclusively into the adipocytic, chondrocytic, or osteocytic lineages.

Phenotypical and functional properties of human bone marrow mesenchymal progenitor cells

Results demonstrate that adherent marrow‐derived cells cultured in the absence of hematopoietic cells and differentiation stimulus give rise to a population of cells with phenotypical and functional features of mesenchymal progenitors.

Retention of multilineage differentiation potential of mesenchymal cells during proliferation in response to FGF.

It is suggested that FGFs play a crucial role in self-renewal of MSC, and all MSC expanded in vitro with FGF-2, but not without FGF, differentiated to chondrocytes in pellet cultures.

The Chondrogenic Potential of Human Bone-Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Progenitor Cells*

The successful induction of in vitro chondrogenesis with human bone-marrow-derived osteochondral progenitor cells is demonstrated in a reliable and reproducible culture system and provides evidence for the clinical utility of these cells in the repair of bone and cartilage.

Mesenchymal stem cells in osteobiology and applied bone regeneration.

The authors have completed an array of preclinical studies showing the feasibility and efficacy of MSC based implants to heal large osseous defects, and suggest that by combining MSCs with an appropriate delivery vehicle, it may be possible to offer patients new therapeutic options.

This work has shown that hematopoietic reconstitution can be achieved by CD34− stem cells, which can be isolated from the bone marrow, peripheral blood and cord blood cells, and their possible reversible and transient immortalization with optimized vector systems.

Differentiation potential of adipose derived adult stem (ADAS) cells.

Chondrogenic differentiation of cultured human mesenchymal stem cells from marrow.

Increased understanding of the induction of chondrogenic differentiation should lead to further progress in defining the mechanisms responsible for the generation of cartilaginous tissues, their maintenance, and their regeneration.

An elucidation of the interaction between the bone marrow microenvironment and hematopoietic stem cells is critical to the understanding of the molecular basis of stem cell self renewal and
