    BACKGROUND: Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are multipotent progenitors that can commit to osteoblast, chondrocyte, adipocyte and several other lineages. The proper utilization of stem cells for clinical application requires an integrated understanding of multiple signal inputs that control...

    Abundant and less passaged cells are highly expected in clinical application since repeated subculture reduces stem cell characteristics. Long time culture of stem cells without passage is therefore needed. The growth and cell viability of human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSCs) were...
