Disputas – Master of Science in Biomedicine Md Ashraful Islam

Master of Science in Biomedicine Md Ashraful Islam disputerer for ph.d.-graden i helsevitenskap og vil offentlig forsvare avhandlingen:

“Biology of mesenchymal stromal cells: Chondrogenesis, paracrine signalling and cartilage repair”

Kort sammendrag av avhandlingen:

Articular cartilage lesions lead to swelling of the synovial joint, debilitating pain, functional impairment, and eventually osteoarthritis. The use of mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) has demonstrated as an attractive cell source for cartilage repair due to their multilineage differentiation potential and hypoimmunogenic properties. Despite the advances in cartilage repair techniques, there is no consensus relating to the most suitable cell type for cartilage repair or osteoarthritis treatment. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate and compare the chondrogenic capacity, and paracrine signalling potential of human MSCs harvested from adult knee joint and young umbilical cord to find a suitable source for cartilage repair. Additionally, we also used several approaches to gather new knowledge about cell-based biomarkers to predict clinical outcomes after cell transplantation procedures.
