Introduction: Progress in stem cell study and tissue engineeriñ óng reached duriñóng the last times proves that this may be one of the most promising research fields in the future. Most urological diseases could profit from the development of disciplines such as regenerative medicióne as, up to now, there have been encouraging results in this subject. Material and methods: We performed an electronic research through the Pubmed database, of both original and review publications, with the following search criteria: "stem cells urology", "kidney stem cells", "testis stem cells", "uriñónary sphincter", "cell therapy urology", "tissue engeneeriñóng urology" y "regenerative medicióne urology". Results: We reviewed 33 articles published up to January 2010, trying to summarize the most relevant findings within the last years, the clinical applications and the point we have come to this day. Conclusion: Cell therapy and regenerative medicióne are showing themselves to be one of the most promising fields within urological basic investigation in the last years. However, there is much work to be done yet, to make the advances reached in basic research be applicable to the clinic. © 2010 AEU. Published by Elsevier España, S.L. All rights reserved.
