• findings
  • These findings highlight the possibility of using human amniotic fluid-derived stem cells in regenerative medicine, in particular in the area of reproductive health. (biomedcentral.com)
  • A pleural effusion was categorised as malignant if pleural fluid cytology or pleural biopsy findings were positive for malignancy or if the patient had known metastatic malignancy with no other explanation for the effusion. (ersjournals.com)
  • cells
  • Human amniotic fluid cells (hAFCs) may differentiate into multiple cell lineages and thus have a great potential to become a donor cell source for regenerative medicine. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Moreover, culture of EBs in medium containing human follicular fluid (HFF) or a germ cell maturation factor cocktail (FAC), expressed germ cells markers such as BLIMP1 , STELLA , DAZL , VASA , STRA8 , SCP3 , SCP1 , and GDF9 . (biomedcentral.com)
  • In addition, given the difficulties in growing embryos to obtain human embryonic stem cells, amniotic fluid may be regarded as an alternate source of pluripotent stem cells. (biomedcentral.com)
