INTRODUCTION The possible role of stem cells transplantation in therapy for traumatic lesions or for diseases has been outlined in recent years. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is one of the diseases where cellular therapy may be useful. DEVELOPMENT The authors make an analytic review of the studies carried out in humans with ALS and in G93A transgenic rodent model of ALS to evaluate the effect of stem cell transplantation. They also review cellular responses from NSC-EZ cells in the… CONTINUE READING
