Isolation and use of pluripotent stem cell population from adult neural crest-derived tissues

  • US Patent No. 10106773
  • Issued: October 23, 2018
  • Status: Active
Medical & Biotechnology

The present invention relates to methods of isolating a substantially homogeneous population of pluripotent stem cells from adult neural crest tissue (e.g., periodontal ligament) as well as pharmaceutical compositions comprising such isolated pluripotent stem cells. Methods of inducing the isolated pluripotent stem cells into specific cell lineages, such as neurogenic and retinogenic lineages, are also described. The isolated pluripotent stem cells find use in various regenerative medicine applications and the treatment of degenerative diseases.
