Cord Tissue MSCs Show Consistency Between Donors

Human umbilical cord tissue represents an excellent source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and a recent study from the lab of Ian Rogers (Sinai Health System, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) sought to fully characterize can compare cells derived from multiple donors. In their new STEM CELLS Translational Medicine study, Raileanu et al. establish a general similarity between donor MSCs, which they link to the lack of age‐related variation, and therefore highlight MSCs derived from umbilical cord tissue as a consistent, easily accessible source of cells for therapeutic applications.
