Induced pluripotent stem cells from urine of Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients


This integration-free, feeder-free, efficient, and reproducible reprogramming method employed UDCs. Urine is a low-cost, non-invasive, painless, and repeatable source of rapidly expandable cells from children and morbid individuals for obtaining autologous cells for drug-assays and disease-modelling, suitable for DMD and other debilitating diseases. © 2021 Japan Pediatric Society.
