The Immunohaematology and Trasfusion Medicine ServicBlood derivatives ameliorate myogenic progenitor cells proliferation and differentiation:
In collaboration with Department of Biology of Rome University Tor Vergata, we are developing a project regarding the effect of human blood derived serum and/or growth factor on human derived perivascular myogenic progenitor/stem cell, namely pericytes. So, the project purpose is to test human blood derivatives in order to supersede problems related to animal medium supplement and cell therapy for clinical application; moreover, working with human derived stem cdls, we are analyzing the effect of human serum and growth factors on the myogenic capabilities of human skeletal muscle derived pericytes.
