Bone regeneration in craniomaxillofacial surgery represents an issue that involves both surgical and aesthetic aspects. The most recent studies on bone tissue engineering involving adipose-derived stromal/stem cells (ASCs) have clearly demonstrated that such cells can play a crucial role in the treatment of craniomaxillofacial defects, given their strong commitment towards the osteogenic phenotype. A deeper knowledge of the molecular mechanisms underlying ASCs is crucial for a correct understanding of the potentialities of ASCs-based therapies in the most complex maxillofacial applications...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) hold great promise for regenerative therapies and tissue engineering applications given their multipotential differentiation capacity. However, MSC isolation and expansion are typically performed on super-physiologically stiff tissue culture plastic (TCP), which may alter their behavior and lead to unintended consequences upon implantation. In contrast, electrospun nanofibrous scaffolds possess physical and mechanical properties that are similar to that of native tissue. In this study, we investigated whether isolation and expansion of juvenile bovine MSCs directly onto electrospun nanofibrous scaffolds better preserves MSC phenotype and stemness compared to TCP...

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common cause of chronic arthritis in childhood. Up to 50% of patients are resistant to standard therapy, which includes non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs and biologic therapies. Intra-articular injection of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is proposed as a new approach to JIA treatment. MSCs can modulate inflammation via mechanisms of both adaptive and innate immune response. They are able to inhibit T and B cell proliferation, promote regulatory T cells, suppress the maturation of dendritic cells, stimulate macrophage differentiation into M2 phenotype and reduce effectiveness of natural killer cells...

AIM: To establish a model to enrich and characterize stem-like cells from murine normal liver and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cell lines and to further investigate stem-like cell association with epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). METHODS: In this study, we utilized a stem cell conditioned serum-free medium to enrich stem-like cells from mouse HCC and normal liver cell lines, Hepa 1-6 and AML12, respectively. We isolated the 3-dimensional spheres and assessed their stemness characteristics by evaluating the RNA levels of stemness genes and a cell surface stem cell marker by quantitative reverse transcriptase-PCR (qRT-PCR)...

Peripheral nerve injury has remained a substantial clinical complication with no satisfactory treatment options. Despite the great development in the field of microsurgery, some severe types of neural injuries cannot be treated without causing tension to the injured nerve. Thus, current studies have focused on the new approaches for the treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. Stem cells with the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types have brought a new perspective to this matter. In this review, we will discuss the use of three main sources of mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of peripheral nerve injuries...

Impaired osseointegration of the implant remains the big hurdle for dental implant therapy in diabetic patients. In this study, the authors first identified that miR204 was strikingly highly expressed in the bone mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) of diabetic rats. Forced expression of miR204 repressed the osteogenic potential of BMSCs, while inhibition of miR204 significantly increased the osteogenic capacity. Moreover, the miR204 inhibitor was conjugated with gold nanoparticles (AuNP-antagomiR204) and dispersed them in the poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) solution...

Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs) have been shown to produce vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and can increase perfusion in patients with critical limb ischemia. We will show that this concept can be applied to augment blood flow in zones of flap ischemia. We presented a case study of a 26-year-old man with a complex hand injury covered by a reverse radial perforator fasciocutaneous flap, which developed ischemic necrosis and was treated by debridement, transplantation of ASCs to enhance vascular support, and saline dressings...

Human bone marrow (BM)-derived mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (hMSCs) are considered promising therapeutic agents in the field of cell therapy and regenerative medicine, mainly due to their relative facility to be isolated, multi-differentiation potential and immunomodulatory role. However, their application in clinics requires a crucial step of in vitro expansion. Most of the protocols for hMSCs in vitro culture use foetal bovine serum (FBS) as medium supplement that, being from animal origin, presents several safety concerns and may initiate xenogeneic immune responses after cells transplantation...

Adipose tissue-derived multipotent mesenchymal cells (ASCs) participate in the formation of blood vessels under hypoxic conditions. It is probable that the susceptibility of ASCs to the influence of age and aging-associated pathologies compromises their therapeutic effectiveness depending on the adipose tissue (AT) depot. Our aim was to examine the neovascular potential under hypoxic conditions of ASCs-derived from thymic (thymASCs) and subcutaneous (subASCs) AT from 39 subjects with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and of different ages who were undergoing coronary bypass surgery (CBS)...

Laminitis, a highly debilitating disease of the foot in ungulates, is characterized by pathological changes of the complex lamellar structures that maintain the appendicular skeleton within the hoof. Laminitis is a multifactorial disease that involves perturbation of the vascular, hematological, and inflammatory homeostasis of the foot. Interestingly, the pathogenesis of the disease resembles what is observed in metabolic syndromes and sepsis-induced organ failure in humans and animals. We hypothesized that local administration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) might contribute to establishing an anti-inflammatory and pro-angiogenic environment, and could stimulate the injured tissue in order to restore its functional integrity...

Poor healing of tendon and ligament lesions often results in early retirement of sport horses. Therefore, regenerative therapies are being explored as potentially promising treatment for these injuries. In this study, an intralesional injection was performed with allogeneic tenogenically induced mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma 5-6 days after diagnosis of suspensory ligament (SL) (n = 68) or superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) (n = 36) lesion. Clinical, lameness and ultrasonographic evaluation was performed at 6 and 12 weeks...

Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) is accompanied with complex pathogenic course and high mortality. The imbalance of immune response is an important cause which leads the SAP patients to the severe situation and even death. The immunomodulatory therapy can regulate the imbalance of inflammation, alleviate SAP-associated organ injury, and improve the prognosis of patients. Previous immunomodulatory therapy had some problems, such as single-object and simple-method. In recent years, some new methods of immunomodulatory therapy, such as regulating the apoptosis and mature of immune cells, applying of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and multi-regulation methods, provide some new ideas and hopes for SAP therapy...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are emerging as an extremely promising therapeutic agent for tissue repair. However, limitations exist such as the low numbers of MSCs obtained from donors, and the poor survival and function of donor cells. Omentin-1, a new fat depot-specific secretory adipokine, exerts proproliferation, prosurvival, and proangiogenic functions in certain cells via an Akt-dependent mechanism; however, little is known about the influence of omentin-1 on MSCs. METHODS: MSCs were isolated from 60-80 g donor rats...

Aging and losing cell survival is one of the main problems in cell therapy. Aging of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) is associated with a rise in intracellular reactive oxygen species, decrease in telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) expression and finally eroded telomere ends. Given that the production of free radicals in the aging process is effective, the use of antioxidants can help in scavenging free radicals and prevent the aging of cells. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of curcumin on proliferation, aging and TERT expression of rat adipose tissue-derived stem cells (rADSC)...

Background: Glioblastoma (GBM) is almost invariably fatal due to failure of standard therapy. The relapse of GBM following surgery, radiation and systemic temozolomide (TMZ) is attributed to the ability of glioma stem cells (GSCs) to survive, evolve and repopulate the tumor mass, events on which therapy exerts a poorly understood influence. Methods: Here we explore the molecular and cellular evolution of TMZ resistance as it emerges in vivo (xenograft models) in a series of human GSCs with either proneural (PN) or mesenchymal (MES) molecular characteristics...
