Under this cooperation, the BGI Clinical will be responsible for the preservation of the collected dental pulp
stem cells from patients with such needs from the clinics of the Company.
Since dental pulp
contains the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue of teeth, endodontists require meticulous precision and unparalleled dental knowledge.
Recent advances in stem cell biology have revealed that progenitor cells which are named DPSCs are also present in dental pulp
tissue (Gronthos et al.
stem cells are plentiful and easy to collect.
The Company's technologies include its proprietary Mesenchymal Precursor Cell technology platform for bone marrow and adipose tissue derived products, Dental Pulp
Stem Cells and expanded Hematopoietic Stem Cells.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran announced on Tuesday that it plans to establish a tooth stem cell bank to save dental pulp
cavity stem cells to be used by patients in case of a broken or damaged tooth.
Five major sources of stem cells have been proposed: dental pulp
stem cells (DPSCs); stem cells from human exfoliated teeth (SHEDs); periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs); stem cells from the apical root papilla (SCAPs); dental follicle stem cells (DFSCs) (Table 2, Figure 2).
Their dental pulp
is rich in stem cells, which could one day be used to treat serious health problems she may develop.
As soon as it arrives, the tooth is asseA[degrees]ssed to ensure that it is healthy enough and contains viable dental pulp
for stem cell collection to be completed.
Intended for both dental students and experienced practitioners, the second edition of this comprehensive volume on dental pulp
is revised and expanded to address the latest clinical and research developments on the central role of pulp tissue in dental health.
After classification, each tooth was cut along a sagittal line to uncover the dental pulp
, which was then hydrated in sterile phosphate-buffered saline (pH 7.
Scientists transplanted dental pulp
stem cells into rats with broken backs and discovered the animals regained some leg movement.
Operations included in miscellaneous health care range from cord blood and dental pulp
harvesters to sperm bank and organ procurers.
This is cause for concern because of the risk of unwanted collateral damage, especially in the underlying bone or the dental pulp
(19,20), as well as the associated postoperative morbidity.
Together with earlier composition of matter claims in US patent 7,122,178 relating to Mesoblast's proprietary Mesenchymal Precursor Cell (MPCs) technology platform, these new US patents 7,052,907 and 7,947,266 give Mesoblast exclusive ownership over MPCs derived from a variety of sources, including dental pulp
and adipose tissue (fat), in addition to bone marrow.
