This study utilized transplanted bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) as a cellular replacement therapy to remedy radiation induced injury and restore impaired new bone formation during distraction osteogenesis (DO). BMSC therapy brought about the successful generation of new bone and significantly improved both the rate and quality of bony union of irradiated, distracted (XRT/DO) murine mandibles to the level of non-irradiated DO animals. Bone mineral density and bone volume fraction were also significantly improved by BMSC replacement therapy showing no difference when compared to non-irradiated animals. Finally, biomechanical analysis examining yield, failure load, and ultimate load also demonstrated significantly improved structural integrity in BMSC treated XRT/DO mandibles over XRT/DO alone. These results indicate that administration of BMSCs intra-operatively to a radiated distraction gap can function as an adequate stimulant to rescue the ability for irradiated bone to undergo DO and produce a healed regenerate of vastly superior quality and strength. We believe that the fundamental information on the optimization of bone regeneration in the irradiated mandible provided by this work has immense potential to be translated from the bench to the bedside to lead to improved therapeutic options for patients suffering from the disastrous sequelae of radiation therapy.
