Adult stem cells have been identified in human endometrium. Their ability to reconstruct endometrial tissue when transplanted into immunocompromised animals suggests their potential use for treating disorders associated with inadequate endometrium.
The next (re)generation of ovarian biology and fertility in women: is current science tomorrow's practice?
We present an overview of gametogenesis from stem cells, with emphasis on generation of human oocytes, future research objectives for this area of work, and potential clinical applications involving human oogonial stem cells.
Somatic stem cells and tissue engineering shed light on unsolved clinical issues in reproductive medicine: in stem cells we trust
Three experts in regenerative medicine explore the evidence and expanding future clinical applicability of the human ovarian and endometrial stem cell population, and tissue engineering of reproductive organs and tissues.
