Objective: The use of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) for the tissue engineering of vascularized bone is widely spread because of their ability to differentiate towards both required cell types - bone and epithelial cells. Bone Marrow was always thought to be one of the most promising sources of MSCs.[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
