BACKGROUND Mesenchymal stem cells derived from human liposuction aspirates, termed processed lipoaspirate cells, have been utilized as cellular delivery vehicles for the induction of bone formation in tissue engineering and gene therapy strategies. In this study, we sought to evaluate the efficacy of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2-producing adipose-derived stem cells in inducing a posterolateral spine fusion in an athymic rat model. METHODS Single-level (L4-L5) intertransverse spinal… CONTINUE READING
