What are hMSCs and why they are ideal for therapeutic applications

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)? Before we delve into the advantages of using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for therapeutic applications, let’s begin with a quick explanation of what they are. These cells, which are also known as mesenchymal stromal cells, were first discovered by Friedenstein and his colleagues in 1976 from bone marrow, and have since become an increasing focus of stem cell research and therapies. According to the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT), MSCs are defined as cells that follow these minimal criteria: They must be plastic-adherent when maintained in standard culture conditions They must express...

Spotlight on iPSC production

Biological Industries sponsors RegMedNet 2-month focus on the production of iPSCs March 31, 2017 (RegMedNet.com) Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are arguably one of the hottest topics within regenerative medicine. The first generation of iPSCs 10 years ago marked a huge milestone in the field, leading to great progress from disease modeling to development of new, personalized therapeutic approaches for numerous conditions. Key advantages include the potential low-cost manufacture of personalized medicines, omitting the need to use embryonic or fetal stem cells, efficiency of genetic manipulation compared with somatic cells and providing a source for cells that may otherwise...
