Key Considerations
  • Fusions do not address the cause of DDD
  • MSCs increased disc space in animal models of DDD
  • Type II collagen produced by transplanted MSCs may act as a framework (nucleus pulposus)
  • Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP-13) linked to more nuclear cells
  • Nanofibrous matrix could aid in disc regeneration
  • Hydrogels are ineffective
  • Clustered cells proliferate more slowly
