There are accumulating studies that report a neurogenic potential of bone marrow-derived cells both in vitro as well as in vivo. Most claims of neural "transdifferentiation" have based their conclusions on morphology and neural gene expression. Recently, doubts have been raised about the validity of both outcome parameters since non-neural cells can extend(More)
Stem cell-based therapies are currently widely explored as a tool to treat neuroimmune diseases. Multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPC) have been suggested to have strong immunomodulatory and neuroprotective properties in several experimental models. In this study, we investigate whether MAPC are of therapeutic interest for neuroinflammatory disorders(More)
