Progenitor Cell Therapy for Neurological Injury; Preface; Contents; Contributors; Chapter 1: Basics of Stem and Progenitor Cells; Chapter 2: Progenitor Cell Tissue Engineering; Chapter 3: Stem Cell Delivery Methods and Routes; Chapter 4: Neural Progenitor Cells for Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury: Endogenous Cell Rescue Versus Replacement Mechanisms; Chapter 5: Traumatic Brain Injury Pathophysiology/Models; Chapter 6: Traumatic Brain Injury: Relationship of Clinical Injury to Progenitor Cell Therapeutics; Chapter 7: Cell-Based Therapy for Stroke. There are currently no reparative therapies for severe neurological injury, including brain injury, spinal cord injury and stroke. Actually, most treatments are designed simply to limit secondary damage. However, pre-clinical data supports the idea that exogenous stem and progenitor cells have the potential to promote a reparative response to severe neurological injuries. "Progenitor Cell Therapy for Neurological Injury" is a compilation of seminal essays that explore many unique aspects of neurological injury, focusing on the critical translational issues of cell delivery. Specifica.
