ABSTRACT

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have the ability to differentiate into several tissue types. Their use in cancer therapeutics or as therapeutic delivery vehicles has significant potential, particularly in their exosome/microvesicle−mediated tissue regeneration abilities. In this review, the potential use of hMSCs in cancer therapy is discussed.
