Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and Hepatitis

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in many tissues throughout the body, including the bone marrow, adipose tissue, and even cord blood. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a number of different cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), adipocytes (fat cells), and…
