STUDY DESIGN A cytokine expression profile of umbilical cord blood (UCB) derived multipotential stem cells (MPSC) was produced. We then transplanted MPSCs into a rat model of spinal cord injury (SCI) and assessed neurologic function as well as spinal cord histology. OBJECTIVE To determine if MPSCs transplanted into a rat model of acute SCI would lead to a beneficial neurologic effect. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Conditioned medium from UCB contains factors that could promote healing of… CONTINUE READING
