Demyelination contributes to the functional deficits after spinal cord injury (SCI). Therefore, remyelination may be an important strategy to facilitate repair after SCI. Oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) are immature oligodendrocytes and can differentiate into myelin-forming cells of central nervous system under certain conditions. OPC transplantation is an attractive approach for the treatment of demyelinating diseases. In this study, we transplanted OPCs expressing green fluorescent… CONTINUE READING
