Stem cell transplantation for ischemic stroke.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2010;9:CD007231 Stem cell transplantation for ischemic stroke. Boncoraglio GB, Bersano A, Candelise L, Reynolds BA, Parati EA BACKGROUND: Studies in animal models of ischemic stroke have shown that stem cells transplanted into the brain can lead to functional improvement. However, to date, evidence for the benefits of stem cell transplantation in…

Stem cells in human neurodegenerative disorders–time for clinical translation?

J Clin Invest. 2010 Jan 4;120(1):29-40 Stem cells in human neurodegenerative disorders–time for clinical translation? Lindvall O, Kokaia Z Stem cell-based approaches have received much hype as potential treatments for neurodegenerative disorders. Indeed, transplantation of stem cells or their derivatives in animal models of neurodegenerative diseases can improve function by replacing the lost neurons and…
