We carried out a side-by-side comparison of the effects of Human cord blood serum (HcbS) versus embryonic PRP
on Human Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cells(hWMSC)and dermal fibroblasts proliferation. Human umbilical cord blood
was collected to prepare activated serum (HCS) and platelet-rich plasma (CPRP).Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cells and
dermal fibroblasts were cultured in complete medium with10% CPRP, 10%HCSor 10% fetal bovine serumand
control (serum-free media).The efficiency of the protocols was evaluated in terms of the number of adherent cells
and their expansion and Cell proliferation. We showed that proliferation of fibroblasts and mesenchymal stem cells
in the presence of cord blood serum and platelet-rich plasma significantly more than the control group (p≤0/05). As
an alternative to FBS, cord blood serum has been proved as an effective component in cell tissue culture
applications and embraced a vast future in clinical applications of regenerative medicine. However, there is still a
need to explore the potential of HCS and its safe applications in humanized cell therapy or tissue engineering.
