[Olfactory ensheathing cells promote the survival of newborn rat spiral ganglion cells in vitro].

The objective of this study is to explore whether olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) can promote the survival of newborn rat spiral ganglion cells (SGCs) and the underlying possible mechanisms. Co-culture of OECs from adult rats with SGCs from newborn rat cochlea was established and single culture of SGCs acted as control. OECs were obtained and purified… CONTINUE READING
