Scientists designed a 3D printed bead generator that uses an airflow to cleave beads from a stream of hydrogel solution. They demonstrated that viability and biological function of chondrocytes were not adversely affected by high frequency using this bead generator.
The authors evaluated the effect of ionizing radiation on chondrocyte-like cells differentiated from hiPSCs by determining their gene and microRNA expression profile and proteomic analysis.

The authors discuss the therapeutic applications of mesenchymal stem/stromal cell (MSC) secretome and its biomedical aspects related to immune-mediated conditions. Sources for MSC extraction, their migration and homing properties, therapeutic molecules released by MSCs, and the pathways and molecular mechanisms possibly involved in the exceptional immunoregulatory competence of MSCs are discussed.
