New hope for tissue regeneration and joint repair
... One promising strategy is the use of mesenchymal stem
cells (MSCs). MSCs are capable of extensive self-renewal and adaptable to forming all kinds of connective tissues. While detected in several adult human tissues, MSCs have traditionally been obtained from bone marrow, an invasive, painful, and cost...
