• What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?
    Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a prototypical adult stem cell with capacity for self-renewal and differentiation with a broad tissue distribution. Initially described in bone marrow, MSCs have the capacity to differentiate into mesoderm- and nonmesoderm-derived tissues. The endogenous role for MSCs is maintenance of stem cell niches (classically the hematopoietic), and as such, MSCs participate in organ homeostasis, wound healing, and successful aging. From a therapeutic perspective, and facilitated by the ease of preparation and immunologic privilege, MSCs are emerging as an extremely promising therapeutic agent for tissue regeneration. Studies in animal models of myocardial infarction have demonstrated the ability of transplanted MSCs to engraft and differentiate into cardiomyocytes and vasculature cells, recruit endogenous cardiac stem cells, and secrete a wide array of paracrine factors.

    PubMed comprises more than 26 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites. 

    The query  I made on PubMed for this section of the page, was Free Papers  AND on "Mesenchymal + Stromal + Cells". The outcome thereof  (10 returns) you will find below- of course, during the course of time, this RSS feed most likely will look different all the time- and that is of course the purpose and genial thing about RSS feeds- you always get the latest and most current stuff..

  • This page is the news section of my web publishing activities.  Thereby I thought a few years ago, that I could "hammer" this together in a few days by simply selecting some news feeds (or RSS/XML files) of the cell therapy information sources, that I have learned to appreciate over the years whilst dealing with and studying "regenerative medicine" in general.

    That- as a lot of things in life- was a bit opportunistic, but alas, a few years older, a bit more experienced and now the tech seems to work for me and it just is now- mid 2016- a matter of energy and available time to present an always up-to-date source of news on adult regenerative cells, which covers most there is and is adequate for different levels of users.

    My (presently under-appreciated) empire of websites dealing with regenerative medicine consist mid 2016, of a site - - which deals with the most promising technology  in the space from my perspective (i.e. Point-of-care, same day procedure of fresh cells sourced from Adipose tissue). I call this technology "holistic medicine", since it mimics the natural way the body heals its self in case of acute injury.
