While stem cells derived from the bone marrow are well-known in clinical medicine, fatty tissue as a source of mesenchymal stem cells is still the subject of recent research. However, adipose-derived stem cells (ASC) are not only harvested less invasively, i.e. via minimally invasive liposuction, but also yield higher numbers of multipotent stem cells.Due to cell-cell interactions and also because of the very favorable secretion profile of growth factors and cytokines ASCs displayed an extraordinary regenerative potential in recent preclinical and clinical applications and achieved a significantly better healing in ischemic muscle, heart, and brain insults and in impaired wound healing. ASCs enhanced regeneration in skeletal tissues such as cartilage or bone. They also revealed immunomodulatory effects and improved the clinical status in immunological diseases.In conclusion ASCs are comparable to bone marrow-derived stem cells concerning possible applications in clinical medicine.
