Amniotic fluid has been recently suggested as an alternative source of mesenchymal stem cells. However, the fate of amniotic fluid-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AF-MSCs) after in vivo transplantation has yet to be determined. In the present study we explored whether human AF-MSCs could survive and migrate following transplantation into the striatum of normal and ischemic rat. We found that the grafted cells could survive and migrate towards multiple brain regions in the normal animals, while… CONTINUE READING
