The Schwann cell is one of the most widely studied cell types for repair of the spinal cord. These cells play a crucial role in endogenous repair of peripheral nerves due to their ability to dedifferentiate, migrate, proliferate, express growth promoting factors, and myelinate regenerating axons. Following trauma to the spinal cord, Schwann cells migrate from the periphery into the injury site, where they apparently participate in endogenous repair processes. For transplantation into the spinal… CONTINUE READING
