Swinburne stem-cell technology aids 3D printed cartilage repair

Novel stem-cell technology developed at Swinburne will be used to grow the massive number of stem cells required for a new hand-held 3D printer that will enable surgeons to create patient-specific bone and cartilage. The technology, called BioSphere, is being developed in collaboration with St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne to support the development of Biopen. […]

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.
