Regeneration with Meniscus-derived Stem Cells

The results of a new study by researchers led by Weishan Chen and Weiliang Shen (Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China) have demonstrated, for the first time, that meniscus‐derived stem cells (MeSCs) derived at earlier developmental stages may not be optimal for meniscus regeneration and articular cartilage protection when compared to MeSCs derived from day seven inner meniscus tissue. He et al. believe that their new findings could make a significant contribution to human meniscus tissue engineering in the future; for all the details, see STEM CELLS Translational Medicine.
