Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent adult stem cells that self-renew and have the ability to differentiate into various cell types, such as muscle, bone, and cartilage. These cells can be obtained from a patient and subsequently injected into a site of interest in the same patient (ie, autologous use). MSCs also demonstrate paracrine activity by releasing various growth factors and exhibit immunomodulatory capability.
