INTRODUCTION Bone replacement is often necessary during reconstruction of craniofacial anomalies or trauma. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) possess osteogenic potential and are a promising cell source for bone tissue engineering. The present study was designed to assess the osteogenic potential and utility of using ASCs to regenerate bone in a rabbit calvarial defect model. METHODS Rabbit ASCs were seeded on gelatin foam (GF) scaffolds and induced in osteogenic medium containing bone… CONTINUE READING
