The word "telocyte" was first used in the scientific press a few years ago to refer to a "new" cell type that Popescu and Faussone-Pellegrini had discovered in the connective tissue of various organs (2012). Since then, 368 papers have been published that use the term "telocyte," 261 of them in the last five years.
