Answer from the Professor to my MSC question


I posed the questions below regarding MSC growth in the body to the Professor :

Dear Professor,
Was wondering how the MSCs grow inside our body:
Do they grow to a maximum level and then stop growing?
since they transdifferentiate into the target cell, and replicate themselves as well, how is their population going to decrease ?
How does the body limit their replication?
Any guidance will be appreciated,

Regards,

” Dear Nader,

Good questions.

The characteristic of stem cells is that they proliferate and one of the 2 cells created remains stem cell, or else the source will be depleted. This is the basis also in the bone marrow that creates our red cells, white cells and immune system cells for as long as we live.

We know MSCs can migrate to the sites of action. We do not know much further than that what exactly happened there, but what ever it is, nothing bad according to our cumulative experience. ”

Professor Slavin

Ok, not very black and white, but encouraging. What I derive from this is that there is no apparant element that will stop the MSCs from continuing to proliferate and repair in our body. Actually knowing the continuous growth and creation of BM cells (as indicated), it is logical for the proliferation to continue on in the body.
Now it makes sense to think that the original quantity of MSCs transplanted is not an important factor : They will continue to split, grow and repair ,

Shah
