ABSTRACT

Introducción: En el tejido adiposo se han identificado células madre mesenquimales con capacidad autorrenovadora y multipotencial. Mediante digestión enzimática y centrifugado del lipoaspirado se libera una población heterogénea de células denominada fracción vascular estromal, con innumerables potencialidades terapéuticas en el campo de la medicina regenerativa. Objetivo: Actualizar el alcance de las células madre derivadas de tejido adiposo en la terapia regenerativa. Método: Se revisaron 38 artículos entre los años 2000 y 2019 en las bases de datos Scielo, ScienceDirect, Medline y Pubmed. Desarrollo: Las células de la fracción vascular estromal se caracterizan por su capacidad de generar tejido adiposo y vasos sanguíneos, y por la producción de factores de crecimiento que ayudan en la supervivencia de los adipocitos y la formación de una red vascular. El principal mecanismo de acción de las células madre derivadas de tejido adiposo parece deberse a su acción paracrina y a la sinergia con células endoteliales. En el campo de la medicina regenerativa se han utilizado en el tratamiento de cicatrices patológicas y de fibrosis deformantes con impotencia funcional, en las reconstrucciones de secuelas por cáncer y en el cierre precoz de zonas cruentas. Conclusiones: La lipotransferencia es un procedimiento con un mínimo de complicaciones que constituye una de las opciones terapéuticas más empleadas para corregir defectos en los tejidos, debido a que no solo es un medio de relleno, sino que también permite la regeneración y restauración tisular. La presencia de células madre en el tejido adiposo, unido a su accesibilidad, disponibilidad e histocompatibilidad, ha motivado su aplicación cada vez más expandida en la medicina estética, reconstructiva y regenerativa(AU)


Introduction: Mesenchymal stem cells with self-renewing and multipotential capacity have been identified in adipose tissue. By means of enzymatic digestion and centrifugation of the lipoaspirate a heterogeneous population of cells called vascular stromal fraction is released. It has innumerable therapeutic potentialities in the field of regenerative medicine. Objective: To update the scope of stem cells derived from adipose tissue in regenerative therapy. Method: 38 articles published between 2000 and 2019 in the Scielo, ScienceDirect, Medline and Pubmed databases were reviewed. Development: The cells of the vascular stromal fraction are characterized by generating adipose tissue and blood vessels and by the production of growth factors that help in the survival of adipocytes and the formation of a vascular network. The main mechanism of action of stem cells derived from adipose tissue appears to be due to their paracrine action and synergy with endothelial cells. Stem cells derived from adipose tissue have been used in regenerative medicine for the treatment of pathological scars and deforming fibrosis with functional impotence, in the reconstruction of cancer sequelae and in the early closure of bloody areas. Conclusions: Lipotransfer is a procedure with a minimum of complications that constitutes one of the most widely used therapeutic options to correct tissue defects, since it is not only a filling medium, but also allows tissue regeneration and restoration. The presence of stem cells in adipose tissue, together with their accessibility, availability and histocompatibility, has motivated their increasingly widespread application in aesthetic, reconstructive and regenerative medicine(AU)

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to inhibit adipogenic differentiation by transfecting two growth factors, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF-BB) and bone morphogenic protein 2 (BMP-2), into modified rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (rBMSCs) and then compounded with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). To achieve rBMSCs, the osteoporosis model of rats was established, and then the rBMSCs from the rats were isolated and identified. Co-transfection of rBMSCs with PDGF-BB-GFP and BMP-2 and detection of PDGF-BB/BMP-2 expression in transfected BMSCs was assessed by qRT-PCR and western blot, respectively. Moreover, the effect of the two growth factors transfection of rBMSCs on adipogenic differentiation was evaluated by oil red O staining and western blot, respectively. Finally, construction of the two growth factors transfection of rBMSCs compounded with PRP and detection of adipogenic differentiation were assessed by oil red O staining, CCK-8, and western blot, respectively. In vitro studies revealed that the two growth factors transfection of rBMSCs compounded with PRP promoted cell viability and inhibited adipogenic differentiation and could be promising for inhibiting adipogenic differentiation.

ABSTRACT

Mineralized tissue regeneration is an important and challenging part of the field of tissue engineering and regeneration. At present, autograft harvest procedures may cause secondary trauma to patients, while bone scaffold materials lack osteogenic activity, resulting in a limited application. Loaded with osteogenic induction growth factor can improve the osteoinductive performance of bone graft, but the explosive release of growth factor may also cause side effects. In this study, we innovatively used platelet-rich fibrin (PRF)-modified bone scaffolds (Bio-Oss

ABSTRACT

Emerging data have demonstrated that bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) play important roles in the progression of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Experiments in vitro have showed that MSCs derived from MDS patients (MDS-MSC) exhibit the biological characteristics of cell senescence. Although the underlying mechanisms that regulate cell senescence need to be further elucidated, existing researches indicate that the mechanisms of MDS-MSC senescence have significant heterogeneity. Depth understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in cell senescence of MDS-MSC are crucial to explore the potential therapeutic target of MDS. Therefore, this review summarizes research advances related with MSC senescence, such as MDS-MSC intrinsic changes in telomere shortening, DNA methylation status, oxidative stress and signal pathways regulating cell senescence in recent years.

ABSTRACT

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are capable of supporting hematopoiesis, regulating immune responses, promoting tissue regeneration and homing to damaged tissues, but their efficacy cannot completely exploit due to various factors. Studies in recent years have shown that the biological characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells have plasticity. Researchers can enhance the biological performance of MSC by pretreatment with hypoxia, bioactive molecules, genetic modification, and mechanical stimulation, as well as adjusting MSC transplantation strategies, which has great significance for promoting the transformation of MSC. Therefore, in this review, the recent research advances in the plasticity of the biological characteristics of MSC are summarized briefly.

ABSTRACT

The normal hematopoiesis of the body are depends on the proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell (HSPC), as well as the mesenchymal stem/stromal cell (MSC) that support the growth and development of hematopoietic microenvironment of bone marrow (BM). At present, the commonly used MSC for promoting hematopoiesis are mainly derived from BM, however, the acquisition of MSC from BM is limited by the number, sampling, isolation and purification. Compared with BM, adipose tissue has many advantages, including widely distributed, abundant in source, simple and easy to obtain, and contains more pluripotent stem cell, such as adipose tissue-derived stem cell (ADSC), in which Perivascular cell/pericyte (PC) are considered as the precursor cell of MSC, also is the main components of vascular microenvironment, and plays an important role in the proliferation and differentiation of HSPC. PC is especially abundant in adipose tissue, and with the advantages of easy acquisition, small damage, fast cell proliferation and low immunogenicity. Therefore, the sustaining hematopoiess of human adipose derived-perivascular stem cell (AD-PC) to HSPC requires further research and exploration. In this review, the possible supporting effects and PC subgroup of ADSC as stromal cell on HSPC are summarized briefly.

ABSTRACT

Temporomandibular joint osteoarthritis (TMJOA) is mainly manifested as perforation of temporomandibular joint disc (TMJD) and destruction of condylar osteochondral complex (COCC). In recent years, tissue engineering technology has become one of the effective strategies in repairing this damage. With the development of scaffold material technology, composite scaffolds have become an important means to optimize the performance of scaffolds with the combined advantages of natural materials and synthetic materials. The gelling method with the minimally invasive concept can greatly solve the problems of surgical trauma and material anastomosis, which is beneficial to the clinical transformation of temporomandibular joint tissue engineering. Extracellular matrix scaffolds technology can solve the problem of scaffold source and maximize the simulation of the extracellular environment, which provides an important means for the transformation of temporo joint tissue engineering to animal level. Due to the limitation of the source and amplification of costal chondrocytes, the use of mesenchymal stem cells from different sources has been widely used for temporomandibular joint tissue engineering. The fibrochondral stem cells isolated from surface layer of articular cartilage may provide one more suitable cell source. Transforming growth factor β superfamily, due to its osteochondrogenesis activity has been widely used in tissue engineering, and platelet-rich derivative as a convenient preparation of compound biological factor, gradually get used in temporomandibular joint tissue engineering. With the deepening of research on extracellular microenvironment and mechanical stimulation, mesenchymal stem cells, exosomes and stress stimulation are increasingly being used to regulate the extracellular microenvironment. In the future, the combination of complex bioactive factors and certain stress stimulation may become a trend in the temporomandibular joint tissue engineering research. In this article, the progress on tissue engineering in repairing COCC and TMJD, especially in scaffold materials, seed cells and bioactive factors, are reviewed, so as to provide information for future research design and clinical intervention.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To compare the mRNA level of cell proliferation-related genes Twist1, SIRT1, FGF2 and TGF-β3 in placenta mesenchymal stem cells (PA-MSCs), umbilical cord mensenchymals (UC-MSCs) and dental pulp mesenchymal stem cells (DP-MSCs).@*METHODS@#The morphology of various passages of PA-MSCs, UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs were observed by microscopy. Proliferation and promoting ability of the three cell lines were detected with the MTT method. Real-time PCR (RT-PCR) was used to determine the mRNA levels of Twist1, SIRT1, FGF2, TGF-β3.@*RESULTS@#The morphology of UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs was different from that of PA-MSCs. Proliferation ability and promoting ability of the PA-MSCs was superior to that of UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs. In PA-MSCs, expression level of Twist1 and TGF-β3 was the highest and FGF2 was the lowest. SIRT1 was highly expressed in UC-MSCs. With the cell subcultured, different expression levels of Twist1, SIRT1, FGF2, TGF-β3 was observed in PA-MSCs, UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs.@*CONCLUSION@#Up-regulated expression of the Twist1, SIRT1 and TGF-β3 genes can promote proliferation of PA-MSCs, UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs, whilst TGF-β3 may inhibit these. The regulatory effect of Twist1, SIRT1, FGF2 and TGF-β3 genes on PA-MSCs, UC-MSCs and DP-MSCs are different.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Autophagy of alveolar macrophages is a crucial process in ischemia/reperfusion injury-induced acute lung injury (ALI). Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) are multipotent cells with the potential for repairing injured sites and regulating autophagy. This study was to investigate the influence of BM-MSCs on autophagy of macrophages in the oxygen-glucose deprivation/restoration (OGD/R) microenvironment and to explore the potential mechanism.@*METHODS@#We established a co-culture system of macrophages (RAW264.7) with BM-MSCs under OGD/R conditions in vitro. RAW264.7 cells were transfected with recombinant adenovirus (Ad-mCherry-GFP-LC3B) and autophagic status of RAW264.7 cells was observed under a fluorescence microscope. Autophagy-related proteins light chain 3 (LC3)-I, LC3-II, and p62 in RAW264.7 cells were detected by Western blotting. We used microarray expression analysis to identify the differently expressed genes between OGD/R treated macrophages and macrophages co-culture with BM-MSCs. We investigated the gene heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), which is downstream of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase/protein kinase B (PI3K/Akt) signaling pathway.@*RESULTS@#The ratio of LC3-II/LC3-I of OGD/R treated RAW264.7 cells was increased (1.27 ± 0.20 vs. 0.44 ± 0.08, t = 6.67, P  < 0.05), while the expression of p62 was decreased (0.77 ± 0.04 vs. 0.95 ± 0.10, t = 2.90, P  < 0.05), and PI3K (0.40 ± 0.06 vs. 0.63 ± 0.10, t = 3.42, P  < 0.05) and p-Akt/Akt ratio was also decreased (0.39 ± 0.02 vs. 0.58 ± 0.03, t = 9.13, P  < 0.05). BM-MSCs reduced the LC3-II/LC3-I ratio of OGD/R treated RAW264.7 cells (0.68 ± 0.14 vs. 1.27 ± 0.20, t = 4.12, P  < 0.05), up-regulated p62 expression (1.10 ± 0.20 vs. 0.77 ± 0.04, t = 2.80, P  < 0.05), and up-regulated PI3K (0.54 ± 0.05 vs. 0.40 ± 0.06, t = 3.11, P  < 0.05) and p-Akt/Akt ratios (0.52 ± 0.05 vs. 0.39 ± 0.02, t = 9.13, P  < 0.05). A whole-genome microarray assay screened the differentially expressed gene HO-1, which is downstream of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, and the alteration of HO-1 mRNA and protein expression was consistent with the data on PI3K/Akt pathway.@*CONCLUSIONS@#Our results suggest the existence of the PI3K/Akt/HO-1 signaling pathway in RAW264.7 cells under OGD/R circumstances in vitro, revealing the mechanism underlying BM-MSC-mediated regulation of autophagy and enriching the understanding of potential therapeutic targets for the treatment of ALI.

ABSTRACT

Hydroxyapatite, chitosan, and carbon nanotube composite biomaterial were developed to improve bone healing. Previous studies suggested that a combination of biomaterials and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can potentially help promote bone regeneration. In the present study, we first developed hydroxyapatite, chitosan, and carbon nanotube composite biomaterial. Then, the effect of different concentrations of the extract on the viability of Vero cells (ATCC CCL-81) and MSCs obtained from sheep bone marrow using methylthiazol tetrazolium (MTT) and propidium iodide (PI) assays were evaluated. The biomaterial group demonstrated an absence of cytotoxicity, similar to the control group. Samples with 50% and 10% biomaterial extract concentrations showed higher cell viability compared to samples from the control group (MTT assay). These results suggest that the presence of this composite biomaterial can be used with MSCs. This study also concluded that hydroxyapatite, chitosan, and carbon nanotube composite biomaterial were not cytotoxic. Therefore, these could be used for performing in vivo tests.(AU)


O compósito à base de hidroxiapatita, quitosana e nanotubo de carbono foi desenvolvido com o intuito de auxiliar na consolidação óssea. Estudos anteriores sugerem que a combinação de substitutos ósseos e células-tronco mesenquimais (CTM) podem auxiliar a potencializar e promover a regeneração óssea. No presente estudo, o biomaterial foi desenvolvido e a viabilidade e a citotoxicidade de células Vero (ATCC CCL-81) e CTM obtidas de medula óssea provenientes de ovinos utilizando ensaios metil-tiazol-tetrazólio, MTT e iodeto de propídeo (PI) foram avaliadas em diferentes concentrações de extrato desse compósito. O compósito demonstrou ausência de citotoxicidade com comportamento semelhante ao grupo controle. Amostras com 50% e 10% de concentração de extrato do compósito mostraram resultados maiores comparados ao grupo controle (ensaio MTT). Esses resultados também sugerem que a presença do biomaterial pode ser utilizada em associação a CTM. Assim, esse estudo conclui que o compósito apresentado de hidroxiapatita, quitosana e nanotubo de cabono não foi considerado citotóxico e pode ser utilizado em teste in vivo.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been considered a promising therapeutic alternative, since platelets are rich in growth factors that are used in the Regenerative Medicine field. However, fresh PRP cannot be stored for long periods. This study aimed to develop a protocol for obtaining lyophilized canine PRP capable of maintaining viability after its reconstitution. For that purpose, canine PRP extraction and lyophilization protocols were initially tested. Subsequently, assays were carried out to quantify the growth factors VEGF and TGF-β, before and after the lyophilization process, gelation test and the three-dimensional gel structure analysis of the reconstituted lyophilized PRP by electron microscopy, as well as in vitro cell proliferation test in lyophilized PRP gel. Additionally, the immunogenicity test was performed, using allogeneic samples of lyophilized PRP. The results showed that the lyophilized PRP had adequate therapeutic concentrations of growth factors VEGF and TGF-β (9.1pg/mL and 6161.6pg/mL, respectively). The reconstituted PRP gel after lyophilization showed an in vitro durability of 10 days. Its electron microscopy structure was similar to that of fresh PRP. In the cell proliferation test, an intense division process was verified in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) through the three-dimensional mesh structure of the lyophilized PRP gel. The immunogenicity test showed no evidence of an immune reaction. The findings were promising, suggesting the possibility of having a lyophilized canine PRP that can be marketed. New in vivo and in vitro studies must be carried out for therapeutic confirmation.(AU)


O plasma rico em plaquetas (PRP) é uma alternativa terapêutica promissora, pois as plaquetas são ricas em fatores de crescimento com ação na regeneração de tecidos. No entanto, o PRP fresco não pode ser armazenado por longos períodos. Esse trabalho teve como objetivo desenvolver um protocolo de obtenção de PRP liofilizado canino capaz de manter a viabilidade pós reconstituição. Portanto, foram testados diversos protocolos de extração e liofilização. Para validação do PRP canino liofilizado foi analisada a concentração dos fatores de crescimento VEGF e TGF-β antes e após o processo de liofilização, a estrutura tridimensional do PRP liofilizado reconstituído em forma de gel por microscopia eletrônica e seu efeito in vitro na proliferação de células-tronco mesenquimais. Os resultados demonstraram que o PRP liofilizado apresentou concentrações terapêuticas adequadas dos fatores de crescimento VEGF e TGF- β (9,1pg/ml e 6161,6pg/ml, respectivamente). O gel de PRP reconstituído após liofilização apresentou uma durabilidade in vitro de 10 dias, sua estrutura tridimensional mostrou-se semelhante ao PRP fresco e proporcionou intensa proliferação de células-tronco mesenquimais durante o cultivo. O teste de imunogenicidade não demonstrou evidências de reação imune. Os achados foram promissores, sugerindo a possibilidade de uso de PRP canino liofilizado para o mercado. Novos estudos in vivo e in vitro deverão ser conduzidos para comprovação terapêutica.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic health condition. MicroRNAs (miRs) are critical in chondrocyte apoptosis in OA. We aimed to investigate the mechanism of miR-130b in OA progression. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) and chondrocytes were first extracted. Chondrogenic differentiation of BMSCs was carried out and verified. Chondrocytes were stimulated with interleukin (IL)-1β to imitate OA condition in vitro. The effect of miR-130b on the viability, inflammation, apoptosis, and extracellular matrix of OA chondrocytes was studied. The target gene of miR-130b was predicted and verified. Rescue experiments were performed to further study the underlying downstream mechanism of miR-130b in OA. miR-130b first increased and drastically reduced during chondrogenic differentiation of BMSCs and in OA chondrocytes, respectively, while IL-1β stimulation resulted in increased miR-130b expression in chondrocytes. miR-130b inhibitor promoted chondrogenic differentiation of BMSCs and chondrocyte growth and inhibited the levels of inflammatory factors. miR-130b targeted SOX9. Overexpression of SOX9 facilitated BMSC chondrogenic differentiation and chondrocyte growth, while siRNA-SOX9 contributed to the opposite trends. Silencing of SOX9 significantly attenuated the pro-chondrogenic effects of miR-130b inhibitor on BMSCs. Overall, miR-130b inhibitor induced chondrogenic differentiation of BMSCs and chondrocyte growth by targeting SOX9.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Mesenchymal and epithelial stem cells were identified in dental tissues; however, knowledge about the odontogenic stem cells is limited, and there are some questions regarding their temporo-spatial dynamics in tooth development. Objective Our study aimed to analyze the expression of the stem cell markers CD146 and p75NTR during the different stages of odontogenesis. Methodology The groups consisted of 13.5, 15.5, 17.5 days old embryos, and 14 days postnatal BALB/c mice. The expression of CD146 and p75NTR was evaluated by immunohistochemistry. Results Our results showed that positive cells for both markers were present in all stages of tooth development, and the number of positive cells increased with the progression of this process. Cells of epithelial and ectomesenchymal origin were positive for CD146, and the expression of p75NTR was mainly detected in the dental papilla and dental follicle. In the postnatal group, dental pulp cells were positive for CD146, and the reduced enamel epithelium and the oral mucosa epithelium showed immunostaining for p75NTR. Conclusions These results suggest that the staining pattern of CD146 and p75NTR underwent temporal and spatial changes during odontogenesis and both markers were expressed by epithelial and mesenchymal cell types, which is relevant due to the significance of the epithelial-ectomesenchymal interactions in tooth development.

ABSTRACT

Diabetes mellitus is associated with neural and micro- and macrovascular complications. Therapeutic options for these complications are limited and the delivery of mesenchymal stem cells into lesions have been reported to improve the healing process. In this work, the effects of the administration of a lineage of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells immortalized by the expression of telomerase (hBMSC-TERT) as a potential therapeutic tool for wound healing in diabetic rats were investigated. This is the first description of the use of these cells in diabetic wounds. Dorsal cutaneous lesions were made in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats and hBMSC-TERT were subcutaneously administered around the lesions. The healing process was evaluated macroscopically, histologically, and by birefringence analysis. Diabetic wounded rats infused with hBMSC-TERT (DM-TERT group) and the non-diabetic wounded rats not infused with hBMSC-TERT (CW group) had very similar patterns of fibroblastic response and collagen proliferation indicating improvement of wound healing. The result obtained by birefringence analysis was in accordance with that obtained by the histological analysis. The results indicated that local administration of hBMSC-TERT in diabetic wounds improved the wound healing process and may become a therapeutic option for wounds in individuals with diabetes.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES: The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak has catastrophically threatened public health worldwide and presented great challenges for clinicians. To date, no specific drugs are available against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) appear to be a promising cell therapy owing to their potent modulatory effects on reducing and healing inflammation-induced lung and other tissue injuries. The present pilot study aimed to explore the therapeutic potential and safety of MSCs isolated from healthy cord tissues in the treatment of patients with COVID-19. METHODS: Twelve patients with COVID-19 treated with MSCs plus conventional therapy and 13 treated with conventional therapy alone (control) were included. The efficacy of MSC infusion was evaluated by changes in oxygenation index, clinical chemistry and hematology tests, immunoglobulin (Ig) levels, and pulmonary computerized tomography (CT) imaging. The safety of MSC infusion was evaluated based on the occurrence of allergic reactions and serious adverse events. RESULTS: The MSC-treated group demonstrated significantly improved oxygenation index. The area of pulmonary inflammation decreased significantly, and the CT number in the inflammatory area tended to be restored. Decreased IgM levels were also observed after MSC therapy. Laboratory biomarker levels at baseline and after therapy showed no significant changes in either the MSC-treated or control group. CONCLUSION: Intravenous infusion of MSCs in patients with COVID-19 was effective and well tolerated. Further studies involving a large cohort or randomized controlled trials are warranted.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Head and neck cancer is the sixth leading cancer by incidence worldwide and eighth by death. Recent reports revealed that, not only radiotherapy but also chemotherapy may induce xerostomia. The aim of this study was to compare the possible regenerative effect of BMSCs through systemic and local injections. Material and Methods: 52 male Albino rats were randomly divided into 4 groups: Group 1: 10 rats received 0.5 ml of PBS by injection. Group 2: 14 rats received an intraperitoneal injection of 5-FU drug. Group 3: 14 rats were injected the same dose of 5-FU then received an intraglandular transplantation of BMSCs suspended in 0.5 ml of PBS at day 1 after 5-FU administration. Group 4: 14 rats were injected the same dose of 5-FU then received an intravenous injection of BMSCs suspended in 0.5 ml of PBS via the tail vein at day 1 after 5-FU administration. Results: Histological examination showed that group 2 showed features of severe degenerative changes which increased over time. Group 3 showed increasing amelioration in the ductal structure overtime. Group 4 also showed regenerated ductal elements however concerning apoptotic changes, immunohistochemistry results revealed improvement in both group 3 and 4 over group 2 with no statistical difference between groups 3 and 4. Conclusion: Histological and immunohistochemical features in group 3 and group 4 revealed similar amelioration in regenerative potentials. On the other hand, regenerative features of both experimental groups were statistically significant as compared independently to group 1 (AU)


Objetivo: O carcinoma de cabeça e pescoço é o sexto câncer de maior incidência no mundo sendo a oitava causa de morte por cancer. Relatos recentes revelaram que não apenas a radioterapia, mas também a quimioterapia podem induzir xerostomia. O objetivo desse estudo foi comparar a possivel ação regenerative de BMSCs através de injeção local e sistêmica. Material e Métodos: 52 ratos Albino foram aleatoriamente alocados em 4 grupos: Grupo 1: 10 ratos que receberam 0.5 ml de injeção de PBS. Grupo 2: 14 ratos que receberam injeção intraperitoneal da droga 5-FU. Grupo 3: 14 ratos que foram injetados com a mesma dose de 5-FU e receberam transplante intraglandular de BMSCs ressuspendidas em 0.5mL de PBS no dia 1 após a administração do 5-FU. Grupo 4: 14 ratos que foram injetados com a mesma dose de 5-FU e receberam injeção intravenosa de BMSCs ressuspendidas em 0.5mL de PBS via veia caudal 1 dia após a administração de 5-FU. Resultados: O exame histológico demonstrou que o grupo 2 apresentou alterações degenerativas severas que se agravaram com o tempo. O Grupo 3 mostrou melhora da estrutura ductal ao longo do experimento. Group 4 também mostrou elementos ductais regenerados. Referente a alterações apoptóticas,análise imunohistoquimica mostrou melhora nos grupos 3 e 4 comparados ao grupo 2, sendo que os grupos 3 e 4 foram estatisticamente semelhantes. Conclusão: Análises histológicas e imunohistoquímicas mostram que os grupos 3 e 4 apresentam melhora no potencial regenerativo Por outro lado, os resultados observados para os dois grupos foi estatisticamente semlhante quando comparados independentemente ao grupo 1 (AU)

ABSTRACT

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are pluripotent stem cells with high self-proliferation and multidirectional differentiation potential. They also have other functions including immune regulation, paracrine and so on, playing an important role in repairing injured tissues. In recent years, a lot of research has been done on how MSCs promote skin injury repair, and a lot of progress has been made. Compared with direct injection of MSCs in the wound area, some special treatments or transplantation methods could enhance the ability of MSCs to repair skin injury. This paper mainly discusses the role of MSCs in skin injury repair and technical ways to improve its repairing capacity, and discusses the existing problems in this field and prospects for future research directions.
