Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts, chondrocytes, myocytes, adipocytes, and potentially other cell types.
In addition to secreting factors that can stimulate tissue repair, MSCs can substantially alter their microenvironment, exerting effects that are both anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic. MSCs are advantageous over other stem cells types for a variety of reasons, including that they are immuno-privileged, making them an advantageous cell type for allogenic transplantation. MSCs appear to be an exceptionally promising tool for cell therapy, because of their unusual advantages, which include availability, expandability, transplantability, and ethical implications.
Interest in therapeutic applications of human MSCs arises from their diverse ability to differentiate into a range of cell types, as well as their ability to migrate to sites of tissue injury/inflammation or tumor growth. Additionally, MSCs well-suited for use in the exponential growth area of 3D printing, because of their capacity to form structural tissues.
Growing attention is now being given to manufacturing technologies to support commercial-scale production of MSCs. Numerous market competitors are also exploring commercialization strategies for MSC-derived exosomes, because exosomes represent a novel strategy for accessing the therapeutic effects of stem cells without the risks and difficulties of administering the cells to patients.
As the most common stem cell type being used in regenerative medicine, there is substantial potential for growth within the MSC market. Today, there are more than 40,000 scientific publications published about the cell type, more than 800 clinical trials underway worldwide, and Google Trend data reveals that MSC searches are more than twice as common as the next most common adult stem cell type.
