Regenerative therapy

Stem cells from adult tissues were considered for a long time as promising tools for regenerative therapy of neurological diseases, including spinal cord injuries (SCI).

Researchers at GIGA have investigated the impact of pure populations of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and neural crest stem cells (NCSCs) isolated from adult bone marrow in a mouse model of spinal cord injury.

They observed that both cell types induced motor recovery in mice, and modified the inflammatory reaction in the lesion site.

Their preliminary results suggest that both cell types have beneficial effects in experimental SCI.
