Research and Markets: The Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) Product Market 2013 – The fastest growing area of stem cell …

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mqlqdz/mesenchymal_stem) has announced the addition of the "The Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) Product Market 2013" report to their offering.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including osteoblasts, chondrocytes, myocytes, adipocytes, beta-pancreatic islets cells, and potentially, neuronal cells. MSCs are of intense therapeutic interest because they represent a population of cells with the potential to treat a wide range of acute and degenerative diseases.

MSCs are advantageous over other stem cells types for a variety of reasons: they avoid the ethical issues that surround embryonic stem cell research, and repeated studies have found MSCs to be immuno-privileged, which make them an advantageous cell type for allogenic transplantation. MSCs reduce both the risks of rejection and complications of transplantation. Recently, there have been advances in the use of autologous mesenchymal stem cells to regenerate human tissues, including cartilage, meniscus, tendons, bone fractures, and more.

Trend analysis of grant activity, scientific publication rates, and patent applications trends reveal that global research activity involving mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) increased 112% from 2009 to 2010, and 116% from 2010 to 2011. Of most interest is that this rate of growth accelerated throughout 2011, making mesenchymal stem cells the fastest growing area of stem cell research.

Because mesenchymal stem cell researchers represent a rapidly growing, well-funded research community, this report presents strategies for research supply companies to use to develop high-demand products for this community. A key element of this report is a survey of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) researchers.

This survey reveals critical findings that include:

- Preferred Tissue Source for MSCs

- Preferred Species Source for MSCs

- MSC Product Preferences
