This study was designed to investigate the effects of intravenous administration of marrow stromal cells (MSCs) on the expression of growth factors in rat brain after traumatic brain injury (TBI). The fate of transplanted MSCs and expression of growth factors was examined by immunohistochemistry. In addition, the level of growth factors was measured quantitatively using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Growth factors that were studied included nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived… CONTINUE READING
