Age and Sex Influence the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Composition of Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC)
Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) use is exponentially expanding, in part due to the fact it constitutes one of the few methods of delivering
stem cells along with several anti-inflammatory growth factors. Although numerous trials have reported that BMAC effectively concentrates hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs), limited data are available on the ability of BMAC to concentrate mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), given that these cells comprise as little as 0.01% of bone marrow aspirate (BMA). In addition, the impact of demographics factors on mesenchymal stem cell concentrations is unknown.
