A biomaterials approach to influence stem cell fate in injectable cell-based therapies (2018)
Journal Article
Amer, M. H., Rose, F. R., Shakesheff, K. M., & White, L. J. (2018). A biomaterials approach to influence stem cell fate in injectable cell-based therapies. Stem Cell Research and Therapy, 9(39), doi:10.1186/s13287-018-0789-1. ISSN 1757-6512

Background: Numerous stem cell therapies use injection-based administration to deliver high density cell preparations. However, cell retention rates as low as 1% have been observed within days of transplantation. This study investigated the effects o... Read More

A detailed assessment of varying ejection rate on delivery efficiency of mesenchymal stem cells using narrow-bore needles (2016)
Journal Article
Rose, F., Shakesheff, K., White, L., & Amer, M. (2016). A detailed assessment of varying ejection rate on delivery efficiency of mesenchymal stem cells using narrow-bore needles. Stem Cells Translational Medicine, 5(3), 366-378. doi:10.5966/sctm.2015-0208

As the number of clinical trials exploring cell therapy rises, a thorough understanding of the limits of cell delivery is essential. We used an extensive toolset comprising various standard and multiplex assays for the assessment of cell delivery pos... Read More
