ALS Mice Benefit from Neural Stem Cell Transplant per Meta-analysis Study

A meta-analysis of 11 studies reveals that undifferentiated, mulitpotent neural stem cells (NSC) from mice or humans may slow the onset and mitigate the symptoms of ALS in mice. From these studies, Evan Snyder and fellow researchers concluded that the efficacy of this intervention was mediated by a range of factors. Of note, the transplanted cells benefited native neurons to produce their own protective molecules.
