The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the possibility of delivering autologous bone marrow precursor cells into the spinal cord via lumbar puncture technique (LP) in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). Magnetic resonance imaging provides a noninvasive method for studying the fate of transplanted cells in vivo. Considering these propositions, we studied magnetic resonance tracking of autologous bone marrow CD34(+) cells labeled with magnetic nanoparticles delivered into the spinal… CONTINUE READING
