IV infusions of stem cells benefit rodents with ALS, spinal cord injury

Stem cells derived from human umbilical cord blood (HUCB) migrate to damaged areas in the brain and spinal cord caused by disease or injury and provide some therapeutic benefit, two new animal studies by researchers at the University of South Florida Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair found. Both studies, conducted in collaboration with Saneron CCEL Therapeutics, Inc., appear in the the latest issue of the Journal of Hematotherapy & Stem Cell Research published today.
