It’s Not a Rat’s Race for Human Stem Cells Grafted to Repair Spinal Cord Injuries

By Scott LaFee Lengthy study finds that implanted neural stem cells grow slow and steady, and success needs to be measured accordingly More than one-and-a-half years after implantation, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the … Continue reading

De-novo myelination of grafted neural progenitor cells in the adult CNS

We previously reported that neural progenitor cells (NPCs) grafted into sites of spinal cord injury (SCI) exhibit extensive axonal outgrowth and formation of new synaptic connections with host neurons, forming novel functional neural relays across lesion sites. In the present … Continue reading

Optimization of trophic support for neural stem cell grafts in sites of spinal cord injury

Previously we reported that neural stem cells (NSCs) embedded in fibrin matrices containing 9 growth factors and an anti-apoptotic agent, survived and completely filled sites of spinal cord injury. In the current study, we examine whether the number of factors … Continue reading
