Transplantation of Hepatocyte Growth Factor–Modified Dental Pulp Stem Cells Prevents Bone Loss in the Early Phase of Ovariectomy-Induced Osteoporosis

Abstract Investigations based on mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for osteoporosis have attracted attention recently. MSCs can be derived from various tissues, such as bone marrow, adipose, umbilical cord, placenta, and dental pulp. Among these, dental pulp–derived MSCs (DPSCs) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)-modified DPSCs (DPSCs-HGF) highly express osteogenic-related genes and have stronger osteogenic differentiation capacities.

Exfoliated Deciduous Tooth as the Source of Stem Cells: A Technique for Proliferation and Chromosome Analysis In Vitro

Abstract: Since a long time, the field of stem cell biology has undergone a remarkable transformation with constant research on it and its various applications predicated to be coming into use for long term clinical cell based therapies. The present report describes extraction of mesenchymal cells from deciduous tooth and its propagation in vitro with […]
