Background and Objectives: With increasing use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in regenerative medicine, there is greater awareness towards the need to have clinical grade products. The bovine media currently used allow good expansion to give large number of MSCs of the right quality. This report brings the significance of using cord blood serum (CBS) in the derivation of MSCs from umbilical cord matrix, to help its clinical applicability. Methods and Results: MSCs isolated from the cord by explant cultures …
