Abstract
Mesenchymal stem cells have been approved for therapy in multiple geographies and for multiple indications. However, manufacturing from an adult source has been a challenge for allogeneic use. We have proposed that MSC derived from IPSC may solve this sourcing issue and offer several advantages such as the ability to prospectively identify the right allelic phenotype and the possibility of genetically modifying the cells to enhance their utility.
