Tissue-engineered bone formation using human bone marrow stromal cells and novel beta-tricalcium phosphate.


In this study we investigated not only the cellular proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) on the novel beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) scaffolds in vitro but also bone formation by ectopic implantation in athymic mice in vivo. The interconnected porous beta-TCP scaffolds with pores of 300-500 microm in… (More)
