In stem cell cultures there is the possibility of infectious disease transmission to the recipients. Any microbial contamination of the donor`s biological products or introduced during the manufacturing process can potentially present a serious hazard to the recipients. The majority of potential contaminants are mycoplasma and other bacterias, yeasts and fungi. Moreover, viral and prion contamination of cell cultures and “feeder” cells is also a common risk.
|In vitro Differentiation of Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Towards the Osteoblast Lineage. A Model to Study the Effects of Cancer Cells on Bone Formation|
Hichame Id Boufker, Fabrice Journé, Laurence Lagneaux, Tatiana Tondreau and Jean-Jacques Body
This poster describes an in vitro model of DAG-induced osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem using various osteoblastic markers. Human MSC should constitute a useful in vitro tool to the effects of osteotropic cancer cells on osteoblast differentiation and to better understand the inhibition of normal formation during the process of tumor-induced osteolysis.
|Microbiological Control in a Stem Cell Bank: Standardisation|
F. Cobo, A. Nieto, R.M. Montes, C. Cadrera, A. Barnie, J.L.Cortes, P. Catalina, L. Gutierrez, R. Lopez and A. Concha
The transplant of cells of human origin is a sector of medicine which shows a high increase and which entails great opportunities for treatment of certain diseases. Stem cell banks should assure the quality, the traceability and the safety of cultures in order to avoid transmission of disease.
|Mesenchymal Stem Cells: Coming of Age? |
Alexandra Stolzing and Andy Scutt
The effects of aging on human mesenchymal stem cells, (MSC) were investigated. MSC were isolated from patients of different ages and the different parameters of aging were measured either immediately after isolation or after long-term cultivation in vitro. Markers of senescence were investigated, including p21, p53 and beta-galactosidase levels. Antioxidative defense capacity of the MSC were tested together with markers of oxidative damage and antioxidative enzyme activities.
