Chronic renal failure is an important clinical problem with significant socioeconomic impact worldwide. Despite advances in renal replacement therapies and organ transplantation, poor quality of life for dialysis patients and long transplant waiting lists remain major concerns for nephrologists treating this condition

Stem Cell Research & Therapy20123:3 DOI: 10.1186/scrt94 BioMed Central Ltd2012 Received: 6July2011 Accepted: 18January2012 Published: 26January2012 Stem cells are currently seen as a treatment for tissue regeneration in neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, anticipating that they integrate and differentiate into neural cells. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), a subset of adult progenitor cells, differentiate into cells of the mesodermal lineage but also, under certain experimental circumstances, into cells of the neuronal and glial lineage. Their clinical development, however, has been significantly boosted by the demonstration that MSCs display significant therapeutic plasticity mainly occurring through bystander mechanisms.

Abstract Although it is generally accepted that osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition of the cartilage, other tissues such as synovium in which immunological and inflammatory reactions occur contribute to the development of joint pathology. This sheds new light on the potential mechanism of action of mesenchymal stem cell therapy in osteoarthritis.

This document addresses the use of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy for regeneration in orthopedic indications (for example, cartilage or bone). MSCs are progenitor cells located in the bone marrow and other tissues that may develop into connective tissue and bone (Shen, 2005).MSC therapy refers to the procurement (through autologous or cadaveric allogeneic harvest) of MSCs, processing (such as, concentration and/or expansion of cells) and subsequent infusion or implantation of the MSCs into various anatomic areas to promote healing or regeneration of damaged cartilage or bone.
