We previously reported a new cell transplantation method utilizing injections of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) sheets that have osteogenic potential. After subcutaneous transplantation without any scaffold, the sheet demonstrated in vivo bone formation. In the present study, we transplanted such sheets by injection into implanted ceramics and assessed whether the injectable MSC sheets could stimulate osteogenic integration of the ceramics. To fabricate MSC sheets, bone marrow cells cultured from femur shafts of…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
