Abstract: 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…
