EVALUATION OF ADIPOSE TISSUE DERIVED MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS OBTAINED FROM MULTIPLE ANATOMICAL SITES

One of the challenges to effectively propel the field of regenerative medicine is to obtain suitably large cell numbers for cell-based therapies. Considerable attention has recently been given to adipose tissue derived mesenchyumal stem cells (AT-MSCs) because of their potential therapeutic applications in regenerative medicine. AT-MSCs can be harvested from multiple sites in donors thus offering an advantageous approach to harvest cells in large bumbers from a single procedure. However, the relationship between the site of adipose harvest and the ability of the adipose precursor cells to grow and differentiate largely remains unknown. In the present study the authors evaluated nyield, viability, growth characteristics and in vitro regenerative potential of AT-MSCs derived from multiple harvest sites of individual donors.
