Interdependency exists between adipogenesis, the formation of fat tissue from stem cells, and osteogenesis, the formation of bone from its stem-cell precursors. Adipose-derived adult mesenchymal stem cells may be useful for future bone regeneration and tissue engineering. This review discusses potential future relationships between autogenous adipose-derived stem cells, growth factors and resorbable scaffolds for future tissue-engineering applications.
