Building better blood vessels could advance tissue engineering

an the others, in one case less than half. But the vessels they did build were stronger. And upon further analysis, the researchers found evidence that the adult stem cells may be able to differentiate into the kind of mature, smooth muscle cells that support larger blood vessels.

"The adult stem cells from fat and bone marrow both work equally well," Putnam said. "If we want to use this clinically in five to 10 years, I think it's crucial for the field to focus on a support cell that actually has some stem cell characteristics."

Down the road, Putnam envisions that doctors could get these support cells from individual patients themselveseither from their bone marrow or fatand then inject them near the site where the new blood vessels are needed.
