Currently, adult stem cells can be obtained not only from the spinal cord and peripheral vessels, but also from fat tissues of the human body, where they can be isolated as adherent stem cells: Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). Fat tissue is considered as the source of MSCs for autologous tissue engineering because it is readily available in abundant quantities through minimally invasive procedures, as well as being easily cultured and propagated. Further, the fat tissue is a type of Adult Stem Cell (ASC) that is capable of metamorphosis/ trans differentiation into various strains, because of its nature of high plasticity. Therefore, it is possible to proliferate in the desired direction of the network. The purpose of this research was to investigate the effect of different media on Adipose-Derived Stem Cell (ADSC) proliferation from human subcutaneous adipose tissue.
