Growing of Adipose Stem Cell Harvested from the Superficial and Deep Abdominal Subcutaneous Fat

Subcutaneous fat is a valuable source of adipose-derived stem cells. There are two anatomically distinct compartments of subcutaneous fat tissue in human: superficial adipose tissue (SAT) and deep adipose tissue (DAT). This is the first study of comparing growth rate of SAT and DAT. The case study showed that DAT has better growth and self-renewal capacity than SAT.

We have observed yielding and growing of ASCs derived from SAT and DAT. The entire protocol was approved by the institutional review board (No. 12-146) at the Dongsan Presbyterian Hospital (Daegu, Republic of Korea). A 60 year old woman was enrolled in our study. She was 151 cm tall, weighed 73 kg and had high body mass index (33.19 kg/m2) and was admitted for breast reconstruction.
