Engraftment of olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC), a unique type of glia required for olfactory nerve growth throughout life, has been shown to foster axonal regeneration in different types of CNS and PNS injuries. However, a lack of suitable markers of OEC has hindered studies assessing survival and function of OEC grafts following transplantation. The aim of this study was to examine the possible usefulness of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (magnetodendrimers) as a label to allow… CONTINUE READING
