Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are fibroblast-like multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into cell types of mesenchymal origin. Because of their immune properties and differentiation, potential MSCs are discussed for the use in tissue regeneration and tolerance induction in transplant medicine. This cell type can easily be obtained from the umbilical cord tissue (UCMSC) without medical intervention. Standard culture conditions include fetal bovine serum (FBS) which may not be approved… CONTINUE READING
