Influence of Supplements and Drugs used for the Treatment of Musculoskeletal Disorders on Adult Human Tendon-Derived Stem Cells

SUMMARY Background. Recent findings indicate that the connective tissue of tendons hosts cells¬†that can self-renew and are multipotent. Even if these cells seemingly fail to accomplish¬†tendon regeneration in pathological conditions, their identification and characterization represents a milestone in the research and development of new biological therapies for tendinopathies. Methods. We isolated the adult human tendon-derived … Continued
