Skeletal muscle stem cells (MuSCs) have been proposed as suitable candidates for cell therapy to muscular disorders since they exhibit a good capacity for myogenic regeneration. However, for better therapeutic outcomes, it is necessary to isolate human MuSCs from a suitable tissue source that possess high myogenic differentiation. In this context, isolated CD56+CD82+ cells from extra eyelid tissues were tested in vitro myogenic differentiation potential. Primary human myogenic cells derived from extra eyelids including orbicularis oculi, might be good candidates for human muscle stem cell-based research.
