BACKGROUND Noninvasive imaging techniques would be needed to validate the therapeutic benefits of cell transplantation therapy for central nervous system disorders. OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether near-infrared (NIR)-emitting fluorescence tracer, quantum dots, would be useful to noninvasively visualize the bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) transplanted into the infarct brain in living animals. METHODS Rat BMSCs were labeled with QD800. In vitro and in vivo conditions to visualize NIR… CONTINUE READING
