Brown fat: What is it, in newborns, obesity

Brown adipose tissue, or brown fat, is one of two types of fat that humans and other mammals have. Its main function is to turn food into body heat. It is sometimes called “good” fat. Human newborns and hibernating mammals have high levels of brown f

Construction of transplantable artificial vascular tissue based on adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells by a cell coating and cryopreservation technique

Abstract Prevascularized artificial three-dimensional (3D) tissues are effective biomaterials for regenerative medicine. We have previously established a scaffold-free 3D artificial vascular tissue from normal human dermal fibroblasts (NHDFs) and umb

When Can I Use My Stem Cells?

We get asked this question a lot. We do not know when you will use your stem cells, or what you will use them for. We will say that you shouldn’t be using your stem cells today, and you shouldn’t be using them tomorrow. However, with each passing yea
