- ... In recent years, we have witnessed a significant increase in the amount of studies using Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) for cancer therapy, mostly as vectors for drug or gene delivery strategies. This is because of their intrinsic capacity of homing into tumor niches. However, the interactions between MSCs themselves and tumor cells is not fully understood, with contradictory results frequently bei ...

- ... It has been previously shown that the secretome of Human Umbilical Cord Perivascular Cells (HUCPVCs), known for their mesenchymal like stem cell character, is able to increase the metabolic viability and hippocampal neuronal cell densities. However, due to the different micro-environments of the distinct brain regions it is important to study if neurons isolated from different areas have similar, ...
