Adipose tissue stem cells, referred to as multi potent stem cells, are most generally used in the medical packages in current years. Adipose tissues have the advantage in the harvesting, isolation, and expansion of Adipose tissue stem cells, especially an ample amount of stem cells as compared to bone marrow. Adipose tissue stem cells can be located in stromal vascular fractions which are easily obtained from the dissociation of adipose tissue.

Both stromal vascular fractions and culture-expanded Adipose tissue stem cells exhibit the stem cell traits including differentiation into a couple of cell types, regeneration, and immune regulators. Therefore, stromal vascular fractions and Adipose tissue stem cells were researched to assess the safety and benefits for human use. In fact, the number of medical trials on Adipose tissue stem cells is going to increase through years; however, maximum trials are in phase I and II, and lack segment III and IV. This systemic overview highlights and updates the process of the harvesting, characteristics, isolation, culture, storage, and application of Adipose tissue stem cells, in addition to gives in addition guidelines at the therapeutic use of Adipose tissue stem cells.

The rising field of regenerative medicine would require a dependable source of stem cells further to biomaterial scaffolds and cytokine boom elements. Adipose tissue represents an ample and accessible supply of adult stem cells with the cap potential to distinguish alongside a couple of lineage pathways.

Fat grafting is a well-mounted surgical approach utilized in plastic surgery to repair deficient tissue, and more recently, for its putative regenerative properties. Despite more frequent use of fat grafting, however, a scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying either survival or remedial benefits of grafted fats continue to be lacking. Clinical use of fat grafts for breast reconstruction in tissues broken through radiotherapy first provided clues concerning the clinical ability of stem cells to drive tissue regeneration. Healthy fat added into irradiated tissues appeared to opposite radiation injury (fibrosis, scarring, contracture and pain) clinically; a phenomenon since proven in numerous animal studies. In the quest to give an explanation for and enhance those therapeutic effects, adiposederived stem cells (ADSCs) have been advised as playing a key role and strategies to enrich ADSCs in fat, in turn, followed. Stem cells - the body’s fast response ‘road repair crew’ are on standby to combat tissue insults.

ADSCs may also exert affects both through freeing paracrinesignalling elements by myself or as cell-loose extracellular vesicles (EVs, exosomes). Alternatively, ADSCs may also augment important immune/inflammatory processes; or themselves differentiate into mature adipose cells to provide the ‘building-blocks’ for engineered tissue. Regardless, adipose tissue constitutes a super supply for mesenchymal stem cells for therapeutic application, because of ease of harvest and processing; and a relative abundance of adipose tissue in maximum patients. Here, we overview the medical applications of fat grafting, ADSC-enhanced fats graft, fat stem cell therapy; and the latest evolution of EVs and nanoparticles in healing, cancer and neurodegenerative and multi organ disease.
