Isolation of Stem Cells from Human Adipose Tissue: Technique, Problems, and Pearls
The comprehension of the basic concepts of stem cells is easily explained (their isolation, animal models, difficulties, and an outlook for their use, along with points that must be considered in an actual reality). Cloning, homing, and induction of differentiation are pearls that are approached, and certainly may help plastic surgeons understand this. What is real and what is still not real regarding these fantastic sources of inspiration and cure expectancy are considered.
