Transplantation with induced neural stem cells improves stroke recovery in mice

(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) In a study using induced neural stem cells (iNSCs - a type of stem cell directly differentiated from somatic cells), to treat mouse models of ischemic stroke, researchers found that iNSCs improved the survival rate, reduced the infarct volume in the brain, and enhanced sensorimotor function. This method may be a faster way to generate patient and lineage-specific cells to address stroke during the narrow window of time available for effective treatment.
