Allogenic Stem Cells Help Rats Recover from Stroke

Rats, immediately following an induced ischemic stroke, fared better when injected with allogenic mesenchymal stem cells than a placebo. While there was no evidence of stem cell proliferation at the infarct site, tests revealed increased cell proliferation and nearly normal behavioral function in the stem cell recipients, measured two weeks later. The study, led by Sebastian Cerdan and Exuperio Diez-Tejedor, was published in Stem Cell Research and Therapy.
