In the past decades, a progressively escalating international pool of information regarding stem cells research and their applications was periodically accumulating. Among the famous, well-established stem cells sources and lines, a new source appeared that was derived from the adult glands. Despite the long time theories speculating that the adult glands, as most of adult tissues, harbor their own stem cell pools, only recently those cells were isolated, characterized and successfully propagated from the glands. Although some of them are still in the immature phase of research, but within a few years, the newly identified glands derived stem cell lines proved their potency in multiple fields, with the relative ease of their harvesting and propagation compared to other sources. For the first time in literature, a definitive focus is given in this review to the adult gland derived stem cells, in a trial to understand and track their potentials as a new innovative form of stem cells for future applications.
