Potential for Tumorigenesis and Repair of Osteochondral Defects by iPS Cell Transplantation in Rat

Abstract

Articular cartilage repair remains a challenge in the field of orthopedic medicine. Cell-based therapy for cartilage repair, such as autologous chondrocyte implantation, was established in the 1990s. However, the issue of the source from which the lesion-targeting cells are harvested remains a limitation of this approach as larger lesions require more cells… (More)
