Combining adipose-derived stem cells, resorbable scaffolds and growth factors: an overview of tissue engineering.

Author information

Regea Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland.


Interdependency exists between adipogenesis, the formation of fat tissue from stem cells, and osteogenesis, the formation of bone from its stem-cell precursors. Adipose-derived adult mesenchymal stem cells may be useful for future bone regeneration and tissue engineering. This review discusses potential future relationships between autogenous adipose-derived stem cells, growth factors and resorbable scaffolds for future tissue-engineering applications.
