Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and Arthritis

Arthritis is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis, is caused by the wear and tear of the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones in our joints. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult…

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) Help Tendon and Ligament Tears

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found throughout the body. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a number of different cell types, including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells), and adipocytes (fat cells). MSCs can also be induced to become neural cells. MSCs…

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) and Tendon Tears

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a type of adult stem cell that can be found in various tissues throughout the body, including the bone marrow, fat, and blood. MSCs are multipotent, meaning they can differentiate into multiple cell types, including osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), and adipocytes (fat cells). In addition to their ability…
