Description

A process for the expansion and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells obtained from adipose tissue to insulin-producing and glucagon-producing cells for potential cell therapy.

Applications

Cell therapy, biomedical industry, human health, academia.

Advantages

Generate a structure that is most similar to a pancreatic islet, in sufficient quantity and quality to implant in insulin-dependent diabetic patients, and recover its ability to regulate glycemia.
