Abstract:

Adipose tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells (AT-MSCs) have similar properties to the previously characterized bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs). However, adipose tissue is easier to get in larger volumes, the procedure is less painful and at lower risks, and yield more stem cells compared to bone marrow. Moreover, considering the various differentiation and angiogenic potentials, the ease in collecting the samples, and the immuno-suppressive properties, adipose tissue stem cells are very promising for regenerative medicine, and therefore will be the preferred source of MSCs for future clinical use.
