Keywords Mesenchymal stem cells; Regeneration; Articular cartilage; Cell therapy
Core Tip Articular cartilage possesses only a weak capacity for repair; therefore, regeneration of its defects is considered one of the most important challenges for orthopedic surgeons. On the other hand, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are specified as appropriate cell candidates for regenerating incurable defects of articular cartilage due to the following characteristics: inherent chondrogenic property, easy availability, cell homing potential and immunomodulatory function. In the past, several attempts were made to exploit MSC capacity to cure articular cartilage defects developed in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or following trauma. All of these topics are discussed in this review.
