Neural Stem Cells from Neuroepithelial Stem Cells

A recent study from the labs of Philipp Koch (University of Heidelberg/Medical Faculty Mannheim) and

Neural Stem Cell Interactions with Drugs

Neurodegenerative disease treatment may include the development of both stem cell- and pharmacology-based approaches; however, we know little about how neural stem cells, for example, and drugs interact.

Neonatal Astrocytes Promote NSC Proliferation Via TNC

Recent studies demonstrating that molecules secreted from astrocytes play crucial roles in neural stem cells (NSCs) fate determination, researchers sought to understand this process towards creating new strategies to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Autophagy Induction by Neural Stem Cell-derived Extracellular Vesicles Aids Recovery from Spinal Cord Injury

Extracellular vesicle-based approach afforded a reduction in neuronal apoptosis and neuroinflammation and an increase in functional recovery at early stages thanks to the induction of autophagy

NSC Treatment Feasible for Motor Stroke

A recent STEM CELLS Translational Medicine article reports the findings of a single‐site, phase I study of the transplantation of human neural stem cells (NSCs) for the treatment of hemiparesis due to chronic motor stroke. Researchers from the labs of Karl K.

Senescent NPCs in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis: A New Therapeutic Target?

New research establishes senescent NPCs as a contributor to and potentially reversible factor in progressive MS while also suggesting MS as an aging-related disease

Human Neural Stem Cell Therapy in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Protecting the Fetus from Diabetes-associated Central Nervous System Damage with Melatonin

Researchers investigate the hypothesis that hyperglycemia may influence autophagy in neural stem cells and that melatonin may act as a protective agent

Labeling Technique Permits Tracking of Stem Cell Transplants in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Patients

Fluorine‐19 labeling for MRI‐based cell tracking does not affect the fundamental neuroprotective properties of human glial‐restricted progenitors

Uncovering the Routes Linking Stroke to Neural Stem Cell Proliferation and Differentiation

A new study investigates the signaling pathways linking stroke and neural stem cell function with a focus on blood‐brain barriers in brain stem cell niches
