Abstract

The osteogenic activity of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on various hydroxyapatite/β-tricalcium phosphate (HA/TCP) composition in vivo was examined. MSC-loaded matrices and cell-free matrices were implanted subcutaneously in SCID mice. Implants were harvested at 6 and 12 weeks and were processed for decalcified paraffin histology. The results demonstrate the potential of using faster resorbing ceramics, in combination with MSCs for bone regeneration.
