Abstract

Despitethelackofinternationalcriteriadefiningthebiologicalproperties and surface markers that must possess mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), it become of paramount importance to know the different sources and the clinical applications of these promising stem cells. In this chapter we overview the most important sources of MSC from the inner cell mass of the blastocyst to the adult source and landing to the induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). Following the criteria defining MSC properties so far observed, we drew the attention on the role of MSC as tool for regenerative medicine and therapeutic purposes.
