Intravenous multipotent adult progenitor cell treatment decreases inflammation leading to functional recovery following spinal cord injury

Following spinal cord injury (SCI), immune-mediated secondary injury exacerbates the extent of permanent neurological deficits. We investigated the capacity of adult bone marrow-derived stem cells, which exhibit immunomodulatory properties, to alter inflammatory processes and promote recovery following SCI. In vitro, … Continue reading
