3D Bioprinted Scaffold-free Nerve Constructs with Human Gingiva-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells as Bioink Promote Rat Facial Nerve Regeneration.

Despite the promising neuro-regenerative capacities of stem cells, there is currently no licensed stem cell-based product in the repair and regeneration of peripheral nerve injuries. Here, we explored the potential use of human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) as the only cellular component in 3D bio-printed scaffold-free neural constructs that were transplantable to bridge facial nerve defects in rats.

We showed that GMSCs have the propensity to aggregate into compact 3D-spheroids that could produce their own matrix.
