One-Stage Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging to Assess Mesenchymal Stem Cell Survival in a Canine Model of Intervertebral Disc Degeneration.


Intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) is a major health problem. Although mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been used to promote IVD regeneration, the actual survival time of implanted MSCs in IVDs has never been studied noninvasively and continuously in vivo. To investigate survival of implanted MSCs in vivo, this study used a canine model of… (More)
