Abstract

Autologous bone is a finite resource and harvesting is associated with significant morbidity. This study investigated the safety and efficacy of allogeneic mesenchymal progenitor cells (MPCs) delivered via a calcium phosphate carrier to stimulate bone growth in spinal fusion compared to autograft control in an ovine model. MPCs promote early development of spinal fusion equivalent to autologous bone graft in this ovine model. Given the potential for significant clinical problems with autologous grafting consideration must be given to using MPCs in this setting.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
