Hypothermia is known to be neuroprotective and is one of the most effective and promising first-line treatments for central nervous system (CNS) trauma. At present, induction of local hypothermia, as opposed to general hypothermia, is more desired because of its ease of application and safety; fewer side effects and an absence of severe complications have(More)
Direct conversion through transdifferentiation is a promising cell reprogramming approach that induces a cell lineage conversion among adult cells without passing through an intermediate pluripotent phase. However, there is a need to critically evaluate the efficacy and safety of direct conversion to establish its feasibility as a clinically viable cell(More)
The spinal cord injury (SCI) transection model accurately represents traumatic laceration and has been widely used to study the natural history and reorganization of neuropathways and plasticity in the central nervous system (CNS). This model is highly reproducible, which makes it ideal for studying the progression of injury as well as endogenous recovery(More)
Rapid progress in the field of stem cell therapy and cellular reprogramming provides convincing evidence of its feasibility in treating a wide range of pathologies through autologous cell replacement therapy. This review article describes in detail on three widely used approaches of somatic cell reprogramming: induced pluripotent stem cells, direct(More)
