Dylan’s hope (Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy)

The possibility of using stem cells to treat cerebral palsy has been suggested by several scientists based on the ability of these cells to: a) stimulate regeneration of damaged nervous system tissue; b) to prevent ongoing death of neurons; and c) to directly turn into, or "differentiate" into neurons. This is explained in the video [...]

Cord Blood Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy in Clinical Trial

Cerebral palsy is characterized by hypoxia/reperfusion induced damaged to the brain in the perinatal period. It is manifested in four main types: a) Spastic, which occurs in 70-80% of cases and is associated with damage to the corticospinal tract or the motor cortex; b) Ataxic, occurs in 10%, is associated with damage to the cerebrum, [...]
