Induction of Muscle-Regenerative Multipotent Stem Cells from Human Adipocytes by PDGF-AB and 5-Azacytidine

Although the basal transcriptomes of adipocyte-derived induced multipotent stem cells and adipose tissue–derived MSCs were similar, changes were observed in histone modifications and CpG methylation at cis-regulatory regions consistent with an epigenetic landscape that was primed for tissue development and differentiation.

Feasibility of Reduced-Dose Posttransplant Cyclophosphamide and Cotransplantation of Peripheral Blood Stem Cells and Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells for SAA

Scientists evaluated the effectiveness and safety of reduced-dose cyclophosphamide, 20 mg/kg for 13 patients in matched sibling donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) cohort and 25 mg/kg for 22 patients in haplo-HSCT cohort, on days +3, +4 combined with cotransplantation of peripheral blood stem cells and human umbilical cord-derived MSCs for severe aplastic anemia (SAA).

Сord Blood Hematopoietic Stem Cells Ex Vivo Enhance the Bipotential Commitment of Adipose Mesenchymal Stromal Progenitors

Hematopoietic stem progenitor cells from cord blood were cocultured with growth-arrested adipose mesenchymal stromal cells. Commitment-related transcriptional and secretory profiles as well as hematopoiesis-supportive activity of intact and osteo-induced MSCs were examined.

Umbilical Cord Tissue as a Source of Young Cells for the Derivation of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Using Non-Integrating Episomal Vectors and Feeder-Free Conditions

The authors demonstrated that umbilical cord tissue-MSCs could be easily isolated without expensive enzymatic treatment or columns and reprogramed well using episomal vectors, which could allow for the removal of the reprogramming factors after a few passages.
