The state of art of stem cell therapies in urologic regenerative medicine is still under development. There are still many issues before advances in tissue engineering can be introduced for clinical application. The essential question is whether stem cells should be seeded on the urinary tract lumen side. The present experiment, using Real-Time Cell Analyzer (RTCA) DP (Dual Plate) of the xCellligence system (Roche Applied Science, Mannheim, Germany), allowed us to monitor cellular events in… CONTINUE READING
