Bone defects represent a major clinical and socioeconomic problem without suitable treatment options. Previous studies have shown that transforming growth factor β1 (TGFβ1) is important in the development of various diseases. The present study aimed to investigate the therapeutic potential of rabbit bone marrowderived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) expressing TGFβ1 in the treatment of rabbit femoral defects. First, rabbit BMSCs were identified and cultured. TGFβ1 was then stably overexpressed in the rabbit BMSCs by lentivirus transfection, which was expressed at a high level in the femoral defects treated with TGFβ1overexpressing BMSCs, compared with PBStreated controls. In addition, the TGFβ1overexpressing BMSCs promoted new bone formation in the rabbit femoral defect model, and increased the expression of bonerelated markers at week 2 and week 6. Therefore, the study demonstrated that BMSCs overexpressing TGFβ1 may provide a novel therapeutic option for femoral defects.
