Cell therapy of brain stroke

Bull Exp Biol Med. 2005 Jan;139(1):126-8. doi: 10.1007/s10517-005-0229-y.

Abstract

Cell suspension consisting of cells from immature nervous and hemopoietic tissues was subarachnoidally transplanted to 10 patients with brain stroke consequences. Clinical effect of different degree was attained in all patients. Six months after cell therapy functional activity significantly increased in contrast to clinically comparable control group. No serious complications of cell therapy were observed. Presumably, cell therapy is a more or less safe method of treatment, which can be effectively used in the treatment of brain stroke consequences.
