Comparative study of the differentiation potential of mesenchymal stem cells of dogs, horses and cattle coming from the amniotic membrane, cord blood and bone marrow, cultured on a chitosan and hyaluric acid film


The mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have characteristics that differentiate them from other cell types: the non-specificity and the ability to self-renewal over time, and under special conditions differentiate into specific tissues, which makes them extremely attractive due to numerous possibilities therapies. Although little studied fetal attachments have an advantage, ease of sample collection, once again, that these tissues would be discarded. The Stem Cell therapy is currently experience its moment of maximum visibility. All this attention is given the fact that this procedure is a potential target in treatment of serious diseases. The wide applicability of therapy with stem cells is possible due to your unlimited potential to differentiate into several cell lineages, beyond their capacity for self-renewal. For this technique can be used in the repair of fractures or healing of various tissues can be performed in combination with biomaterial, which have a potential merger of cellular and assist in tissue regeneration, and after accession in their place of action, this technique is called Biocure and diverse substrates can be used in this way was chosen a biomaterial Chitosan, which comes from a raw material known as chitin, an abundant polymer in nature, which has recently been tested as Biocure.
