Stem cells generally support human growth, and there are more stem cells in childhood than in adults. Stem cells are also present when they mature and stop apparent growth and serve to recruit cells when the tissue is damaged throughout life. Tissue stem cells such as brain and heart are difficult to separate from the body and difficult to use for treatment, so mesenchymal stem cells that can be easily collected from fat etc. are receiving attention.
Mesenchymal stem cells: relatively easy to obtain from adult bone marrow, adipose tissue and dental pulp, and differentiate into not only adipocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, muscle cells, chondrocytes but also cells such as internal organs and neurons
I have the ability. In recent years, it has been reported that mesenchymal stem cells have an immunosuppressive action and have a property of accumulating in tumors, use of mesenchymal stem cells to prevent rejection after transplantation, and cancer gene therapeutic drug Mesenchymal stem cells have also been used in the field of tissue engineering, with research being conducted as carriers.
