Title: Dental stem cells and angiogenesis: new strategies for tissue engineering
Authors: HILKENS, Petra 
Advisors: LAMBRICHTS, Ivo
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: This dissertation aimed to elucidate the angiogenic properties of different dental stem cell populations in vitro and in vivo. First of all, the effect of different isolation procedures on the stem cell properties of DPSCs was evaluated, after which the ‘stemness’ of DPSCs, SCAPs and FSCs was confirmed and compared. The angiogenic properties of the aforementioned DSCs were investigated by means of expression profiling, functional in vitro tests and a chorioallantoic membrane assay (CAM). Finally, the pro-angiogenic impact of DPSCs and SCAPs was tested in an in vivo model of dental pulp regeneration....
