AbstractINTRODUCTION: Intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration is suggested to begin from the nucleus pulposus (NP). Evidence from various studies highlights mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), in most cases using bone marrow derived MSC, as a potential stem cell source for NP regeneration. However there are indications that fetal or close to fetal tissue sources contain MSC with relatively undifferentiated phenotype with respect to MSC from adult sources. Moreover, umbilical cord (C)-MSC may have better chondrogenic differentiation potential than bone marrow (B)-MSC. We hypothesize CMSC are more efficient than BMSC in stimulating NP ...
