Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hMSCs) present a promising tool for regenerative medicine. Their plasticity and immense ex vivo proliferation potential make MSC an important tool for cell transplantation as well as generation of living, functional tissue suitable for organ repair and replacement. However, ex vivo expansion is necessary to obtain sufficient cells for clinical therapy. Conventional growth media usually contain the critical component fetal bovine serum and clinically unsafe and inconstant in their formulation, complete chemically defined media are needed. Serum-free cultured hMSCs can be classified as equivalent to cells cultured in conventional medium with minor restrictions. The ongoing studies serum-free growth media help to introduce serum-free hMSC culture conditions to preclinical research and future therapeutic applications.
