AbstractMesenchymal stem cells have been successfully obtained from various sources of human body, including bone marrow, peripheral blood, adipose tissue, cord blood, amniotic fluid and other fetal tissues. Placenta acts as a temporary organ providing substance exchange between mother and fetus. It consists of decidua basalis and chorion frondosum, which are derived from cytotrophoblast and extraembryonic mesoderm. These placental tissues contain both primary embryonic cells and adult stem cells, and because of accessibility and ethical concerns the placenta may be an attractive source of mesenchymal stem /progenitor cells for basic and clinical application. In this chapter we review the origin, isolation, characteristics and potential uses in future therapy of these stem cells. © 2013 Nova Science Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved.
