  1. 1. Dental mesenchymal stem cells

    Författare :Nina Kaukua; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Mesenchymal stem cells have been found in various tissues and act as source for renewal and repair. The mouse incisor tooth continuously grows throughout life, implicating that there are stem cell niches constantly contributing with cells. The composition of these stem cell niches is not fully understood. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Human embryonic stem cells for bone engineering applications

    Författare :Giuseppe Maria de Peppo; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human skeleton; bone; bone defects; bone regeneration; regenerative medicine; tissue engineering; biomaterials; scaffold; biocoral; titanium; osseointegration bioreactor; human stem cells; embryonic stem cells; mesenchymal stem cells; embryonic-derived progenitors; osteogenic differentiation; mineralization; immune response; in vitro; in vivo;

    Sammanfattning : The human skeleton represents the supporting structure of the organism and accounts for about 20 percent of the total body mass. Despite its intrinsic capacity to regenerate and self-repair, this ability is limited and repair therapies are needed in a large number of clinical cases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. MESENCHYMAL STEM- AND STROMAL CELLS IN BONE MARROW AND OSTEOSARCOMA

    Författare :Jan Claas Brune; Stamcellscentrum (SCC); []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mesenchymal stem cells; stromal cells; bone marrow stem cells; tumour stroma; stroma-directed anti-tumour therapy; osteosarcoma;

    Sammanfattning : Primary mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) play a central role in bone marrow (BM) and during haematopoiesis. Yet, the exact phenotype and spatial distribution of primary MSC in the human BM are unknown. Their cultured progeny are promising candidates for clinical applications. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Regulatory Proteins in Progenitors and Differentiated Cells of the Human Prostate

    Författare :Jens Ceder; Malmö (Abrahamsson) Urologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mesenchymal stem cells; somatostatin; transit amplifying cells; cell differentiation; adult stem cells; Prostate gland; prostatic benign hyperplasia; neuroendocrine cells; prostate cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Prostate cancer (PC) develops from an androgen-dependent tissue that contains androgen receptors in both the stromal and glandular compartments. Surgical removal of the prostate may cure the patient, but if metastatic spread has occurred, androgen suppression therapy is the standard treatment. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Immune modulation by mesenchymal stem cells

    Författare :Ida Rasmusson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Mesenchymal stem cells; T cells; cytotoxic T lymphocytes; cytokines; mixed lymphocyte culture; B cells; antibody production; stem cell transplantation; acute graft versus host disease;

    Sammanfattning : Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were discovered as adherent cells in the bone marrow stroma that could form bone and stimulate hematopoiesis. Later, MSCs were shown to be hypoimmunogenic and to suppress proliferation of activated T cells. LÄS MER
