MSCs are a class of multipotent cells found in human tissues, such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, dental pulp, and periosteum, a layer of connective tissue that envelops the bones. They are also known as: Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Medicinal Signaling Cells, Mesenchymal Stromal Cells, and Marrow Stromal Cells. [Read more…]
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a well-characterized population of adult stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types (chondrocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, myocytes, and more).
What are placental stem cells and what are placental stem cells used for? As placental stem cells get explored for a variety of therapeutic applications, these questions become increasingly important. The opportunity to collect placental stem cells is also a once in a lifetime opportunity. [Read more…]
DRESDEN, Germany, December 15, 2021 / BioInformant / — denovoMATRIX GmbH, an innovator in cell and gene therapy (CGT) manufacturing, announced the launch of a new technology for bringing down costs and increasing access to high-quality mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) for stem cell-based therapies. The technology termed isoMATRIX, is designed to isolate MSCs in xeno-/serum-free conditions with high efficiency and stemness enabling rapid cell expansion for radically reduced cost of goods (COGs) for cell therapy manufacturers.
Dr. Chris Centeno is an international expert in regenerative medicine and the clinical use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for orthopedic applications. This is Part 2 of an interview with Dr. Centeno.

ACL Surgeries and Regenexx Stem Cell Technology
Dr. Centeno specializes in clinical use of adult stem cells for orthopedic injuries, which he treats through same-day procedures at his clinic in Denver, Colorado, and through cultured expansion of mesenchymal stem cells at a clinic in Grand Cayman. He first performed these adult stem cell procedures in the U.S. in 2005-2006, and his clinic has since has treated thousands orthopedic patients with stem cell based therapies.
Dr. Chris Centeno is best known for the Regenexx® technology, an approach that uses needle-based procedures coupled with sophisticated guidance techniques to place large numbers of stem cells at the site needing repair. This approach can often replace the need for invasive orthopedic surgeries. [Read more…]
