The use of stem cells opens many challenges that are of clinical, scientific and ethical nature. Adult stem cells are being extensively studied for application in replacement of tissues. Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hMSCs) derived from the bone marrow are adult stem cells that are easily available and are used in tissue generation including tissue engineering methodologies. Tissue engineering, a field pioneered by Langer and Vacanti utilizes 3D porous structures called scaffolds that are seeded with human cells.
