چکیده مقاله:

Abstract Background & Aims: Cell therapy is among the novel therapeutic methods effective in the treatment of spinal cord injuries. The aim of the present study was using neural stem cells (NSCs) in treating contusion spinal cord injury in rat model. Methods: Bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) were isolated from adult rats. After three passages, these cells were transdifferntiated to neurospheres and subsequently to neural stem cells (NSCs). At in vivo studies, 43 adult female rats were divided into 5 groups. For the first group or Sham, laminectomy was the only procedure performed, whereas for the other four groups, after laminectomy, a contusion Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) was induced, as well. In group 2, no treatment was performed. In the other groups, injection was performed 7 days after SCI, as such: in groups 3, 4, and 5 normal saline, BMSCs, and NSCs were injected, respectively. The injections were administered intraspinally (IS). Motor improvement was assessed via BBB test one day before SCI and continued up to 12 weeks afterwards in all groups. Results: The current study revealed that a considerable percentage of the cells were BMSCs after the fourth passage. These cells were then transformed into neurospheres and NSCs. In all the experimental cell-therapy groups, a significant motor improvement was observed in comparison with that in the control group. This healing was more obvious during the period between the 2nd and the 4th weeks and less prominent during the period between the 4th and the 12th weeks. Conclusion: Transplantation of NSCs leads to partial motor improvement in contusive rat models.

Impacts of Bone Marrow Stem Cells on Caspase-3 Levels after Spinal Cord Injury in Mice

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a drastic disability that leads to spinal cord impairment. This study sought to determine the effects of bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) on caspase-3 levels after acute SCI in mice. Forty-two mice were randomly divided into 3 groups: control (2 subcategories), subjected to no intervention; sham (3 subcategories), subjected to acute SCI; and experimental (2 subcategori...

Transplanting P75-Suppressed Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Promotes Functional Behavior in a Rat Model of Spinal Cord Injury

Background: Bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) have been successfully employed for movement deficit recovery in spinal cord injury (SCI) rat models. One of the unsettled problems in cell transplantation is the relative high proportion of cell death, specifically after neural differentiation. According to our previous studies, p75 receptor, known as the death receptor, is only expressed in BMSC in...

Remyelination improvement after neurotrophic factors secreting cells transplantation in rat spinal cord injury

Objective(s): Neurotrophic factors secreting cells (NTS-SCs) may be a superior cell source for cell-based therapy in neurodegenerative diseases. NTS-SCs are able to secrete some neurotrophic Such as nerve growth factor and glia-derived neurotrophic factor. Our primary aim was to assess transplantation of neurotrophic factor secreting cells derived from human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSCs) ...
