Interaction of reactive astrocytes with type I collagen induces astrocytic scar formation through the integrin–N-cadherin pathway after SCI

Central nervous system (CNS) injury transforms naive astrocytes into reactive astrocytes, which eventually become scar-forming astrocytes that can impair axonal regeneration and functional recovery. This sequential phenotypic change, known as reactive astrogliosis, has long been considered unidirectional and irreversible. 170 more words

Induction of immune tolerance by short-course immunosuppresion after spinal grafting of allogeneic neural precursors in pigs with previous chronic spinal cord traumatic injury.

Current clinical protocols use transient or continuous immunosuppression in patients receiving allogeneic neural precursor grafts for treatment of a variety of neurological diseases, including spinal trauma, stroke or ALS. 444 more words

Promoting targeted reinnervation of phrenic motor neurons and restoration of respiratory function using BDNF after SCI

We are working a novel approach to promote regrowth of damaged descending bulbospinal respiratory axons and reinnervation of their correct phrenic motor neuron (PhMN) targets after cervical spinal cord injury (SCI). 314 more words

Stem Cell Research

Introduction
Stem cell research is the field of study aimed at benefiting the human race using stem cells. It is from stem cells that all the other cells of the body develop and differentiate to form specialised cells with specific functions, such as brain cells or blood cells. 2,759 more words
