Stem cells could repair spinal cord injuries – Drug Target Review

Scientists from the Francis Crick Institute, UK and the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Portugal have identified a group of latent stem cells the central nervous system. In their study, which was recently published in Developmental Cell, they tested how these cells respond in healthy mice and those with spinal cord injuries.

The cells were identified by chance when the team used a fluorescence tool to look for dendritic cells in the brain. The ependymal cells that the tool identified were found to arise from embryonic progenitor cells that shared a same protein as dendritic cells on their surface, which revealed them to the scientists.
