The effect of urine-derived stem cells expressing VEGF loaded in collagen hydrogels on myogenesis and innervation following after subcutaneous implantation in nude mice.


Impairment of sphincter muscles or their neural and vascular support leads to stress urinary incontinence. The aim of this study was to determine the role of urine-derived stem cells (USCs) over-expressing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in collagen-I gel on angiogenesis, cell survival, cell growth, myogenic phenotype differentiation of the… (More)
