Local immunomodulation and muscle progenitor cells induce recovery in atrophied muscles in spinal cord injury patients

The results presented here suggest that the combination of immune and regenerative cell therapy may play an important therapeutic role in clinical and histological recovery of chronic muscular atrophy.

Case report on the clinical results of a combined cellular therapy for chronic spinal cord injured patients

Objectives: With the intention to ameliorate the clinical condition of patients with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI), a program that combines three cell therapies and an appropriate neurorehabilitation program were used to recreate and enhance the natural conditions of SCI repair.

Immunomodulation of the Injury/Repair response of the CNS resident innate immune system as therapeutic approach for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Abstract

Despite the metabolic dysfunctions found in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) motoneurons, the uncontrolled Injury/Repair Microglia function seems to be the main responsible for the fast and fatal disease progression.

Feasibility, Safety, and Preliminary Proof of Principles of Autologous Neural Stem Cell Treatment Combined With T-Cell Vaccination for ALS Patients

Uncontrolled activation of the innate immune system promotes the deterioration of neurons in different neurodegenerative diseases, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). T-cell vaccination (TCV) was developed by Irun Cohen and coworkers at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) during the late 1970s and has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for human autoimmune diseases and a regulator of macrophage activation in animal models.

Consensus of Clinical Neurorestorative Progress in Patients With Complete Chronic Spinal Cord Injury

Currently, there is a lack of effective therapeutic methods to restore neurological function for chronic complete spinal cord injury (SCI) by conventional treatment. Neurorestorative strategies with positive preclinical results have been translated to the clinic, and some patients have gotten benefits and their quality of life has improved.

Preliminary report on tumor stem cell/B cell hybridoma vaccine for recurrent glioblastoma multiforme

BACKGROUND: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive glioma, presents with a rapid evolution and relapse within the first year, which is attributed to the persistence of tumor stem cells (TSC) and the escape of immune surveillance. Mixed leukocyte culture (MLC) cytoimplant has been shown to function as a power- ful intratumor pro-inflammatory cytokine pump. Tumor B-cell hybridoma (TBH) vaccines have been shown to function as antigen-presenting cells. We evaluated the toxicity and efficiency of each treatment alone and in combination.

Autoreactive T cells induce in vitro BM mesenchymal stem cell transdifferentiation to neural stem cells

Background

The degree of post-injury inflammation of the damaged area of a spinal cord is the main difference between the natural successful repair in inferior vertebrates and failure in superior vertebrates. The treatment of rats with anti-myelin lymphocytes after experimental spinal cord injury induces their functional recovery. On the other hand, mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) from adult BM implanted in injured areas recover the morphology and function of spinal cord in mammals. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is a direct relationship between anti-nervous tissue T cells and MSC reparatory properties.

Combined protocol of cell therapy for chronic spinal cord injury. Report on the electrical and functional recovery of two patients

Background

This is a preliminary report on successful results obtained during treatment of two patients with chronic spinal cord injury. The therapeutic approach was based on the generation of controlled inflammatory activity at the injury site that induced a microenviron- ment for the subsequent administration of autologous, BM-driven transdifferentiated neural stem cells (NSC).

In vitro Differentiation of Adult Adipose Mesenchymal Stem Cells into Retinal Progenitor Cells

Abstract

Introduction: It has been previously shown that adult mes- enchymal stem cells (MSCs) differentiate into neural progen- itor cells (NPCs) and that the differentiation process was completed in 24–48 h. In this previous study, MSCs from a bone marrow or fat source were co-incubated with homolo- gous autoaggressive cells (ECs) against nerve tissue, and these NPCs were successfully used in human regenerative therapeutic approaches.
