Stem cell transplantation has shown promising regenerative effects against neural injury, and photobiomodulation (PBM) can aid tissue recovery. This study aims to evaluate the therapeutic effect of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSCs) and laser alone or combined on spinal cord injury (SCI). The animals were divided into SCI, hUCMSCs, laser treatment (LASER) and combination treatment (hUCMSCs + LASER) groups. Cell‐enriched grafts of hUCMSCs (1 × 106 cells/ml) were injected at… Expand
Combined Effects of Low Level Laser Therapy and Inducers on the Neural Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) improves the therapeutic effectiveness of stem cell therapy for neurological injury through its ability to enhance stem differentiation and protect against neuronalExpand
The effect of low-level laser therapy on pathophysiology and locomotor recovery after traumatic spinal cord injuries: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The results showed that regardless of laser type, laser beams with a wavelength between 600 and 850 nm significantly suppress inflammation and led inflammatory cells to M2 polarization and wound healing and the LLLT showed promising potential to modulate pathophysiological events and recovery after TSCI.

Effect of photobiomodulation on neural differentiation of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells
It is concluded that 808 nm laser irradiation could help CSF to induce neuronal differentiation of hUC-MSCs in early stage and tend to change to neuron rather than glial cells. Expand
Human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cell transplantation for the treatment of spinal cord injury
Transplantation of HUCB-MSCs promoted the recovery of the damaged function of spinal cord nerves in rats with SCI, and IHC identified that at week four following treatment novel nerve cells were being produced. Expand
Combine effect of Chondroitinase ABC and low level laser (660nm) on spinal cord injury model in adult male rats
Combinational effect of low level laser therapy as anti-inflammatory agent and Chondroitinase ABC enzyme as CSPG digesting factor on spinal cord after injury showed combination therapy by LLLT and ChABC is more efficient than a single therapy with each of them. Expand
Improved stem cell therapy of spinal cord injury using GDNF-overexpressed bone marrow stem cells in a rat model.
This study provides a new strategy to investigate the role of simultaneous in stem cell and gene therapy for future neural-like cells transplantation base therapies for SCI with utilize both of N-neurotrophic factor derived Gelial cells (GDNF) gene and differentiation medium that induce the BMSCs into the neural- like cells.

“Low-intensity laser therapy effect on the recovery of traumatic spinal cord injury”
Results showed faster motor evolution in rats with spinal contusion treated with LILT, maintenance of the effectiveness of the urinary system, and preservation of nerve tissue in the lesion area, with a notorious inflammation control and increased number of nerve cells and connections. Expand
Transplantation of Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Wharton's Jelly after Complete Transection of the Rat Spinal Cord
Transplantation of HUMSCs is beneficial to wound healing after spinal cord injury in rats and produced large amounts of human neutrophil-activating protein-2, neurotrophin-3, basic fibroblast growth factor, glucocorticoid induced tumor necrosis factor receptor, and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 in the host spinal cord, which may help spinal cord repair.

Low level laser therapy was be able to minimize the damage to the rat spinal cord of reperfusion-induced injury and also protected neurons from I-R-induced apoptosis in rats. Expand
Gene Expression Changes in the Injured Spinal Cord Following Transplantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells or Olfactory Ensheathing Cells
A regulatory effect of MSC and OEC transplantation after SCI regarding tissue repair processes, but a fast rejection response to the grafted cells is suggested. Expand
Functional recovery in acute traumatic spinal cord injury after transplantation of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells
Recovery of hindlimb locomotor function was significantly enhanced in the human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells grafted animals at 5 wks after transplantation and may prove to be a useful therapeutic strategy to repair the injured spinal cord. Expand
Low-Level Laser Irradiation Improves Motor Recovery After Contusive Spinal Cord Injury in Rats
It is demonstrated that transcutaneous LLLI modulate inflammatory mediators to enhance motor function recovery after SCI and might have therapeutic potential for neuroprotection and restoration of motor function following SCI. Expand
