    Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) are a special type of glial cell in the olfactory system, which exhibit neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, and angiogenic effects. Although many studies have focused on the reversal of demyelination and axonal degeneration (during spinal cord injury) by OECs, few reports have focused on the ability of OECs to repair ischemic nerve injury. This article reviews the protective effects of OEC transplantation in ischemic stroke and provides a theoretical basis and n...

    Spinal cord injury is a serious disabling condition. Transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) is one of the most promising treatments for spinal cord injury (SCI). Thirty-nine patients with chronic SCI received OEC transplantation and completed long-term follow-up, with a minimum follow-up of 7 years. We assessed sensorimotor function with the American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) Impairment Scale (AIS) and autonomic nervous function by the International Standards to document re...

    Objective:To evaluate the long-term curative efficacy and safety of olfactory ensheathing cell (OEC) transplantation by 10 years of follow-up investigation.Methods:A follow-up observation was done on 13 patients with allograft olfactory bulb-derived OEC transplantation from September 2005 to September 2007 at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi’an Jiaotong University. After cell purification, amplification, and identification, a 2 × 107/mL cell suspension was prepared for transplantation. In th...

    Background:Promising results from previous studies using cell therapy have paved the way for an innovative treatment option for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). There is considerable evidence of immune and inflammatory abnormalities in ALS. Bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNCs) possess immunomodulatory properties and could contribute to slowing of disease progression.Objective:Aim of our study was to evaluate the long-term effect of autologous BMMNCs combined with standard treatment on surv...

    Background:Vascular dementia (VD) is a series of clinical and neurophysiological manifestations caused by cerebrovascular disease. As the human lifespan increases, the number of people affected by age-related dementia is growing at an alarming pace, but no proved therapeutic methods can stop it from getting worse.Objective:To investigate the neurorestorative effects of injecting olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs), Schwann cells (SCs), and olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) into olfactory sub-muco...

    Living organisms live in continuous interaction with its environment. During this process changes in one can induce adaptive responses on the other. Many factors in the environment have been studied with the notorious distinction of been rare or to be of high intensity strength in its interaction with living organisms. However, little attention has been put on some factors that have constant interaction with organisms but usually have low intensity strength, such as the case of the inorganic che...
