All ASCs were obtained from subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue of female, Caucasian donors of ages between 28 and 61 with a mean ± SD of 41.5 ± 8.61 years. ASCs isolated from patients having different body mass indices (BMIs) were designated BMI-ASCs. BMI-ASCs used in the study were grouped into categories and identified as either ‘lean BMI-ASCs’ (BMI <25) or ‘overweight BMI-ASCs’ (>30). The patients displayed a mean body mass index (kg/m2) (±SD) of 26.3 ± 4.62.
