Abstract

The current study was designed to evaluate the effects of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on human BMSC (hBMSC) transplantation-mediated neural regeneration in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Fibrin gel was used as a delivery vehicle to release bFGF locally in the TBI sites in a controlled manner. To test this hypothesis, hBMSCs suspended in fibrin gel containing bFGF were transplanted to rat TBI sites. Transplantation of hBMSCs suspended in fibrin gel without bFGF served as a control. hBMSC transplantation and bFGF treatment showed enhanced neural tissue regeneration than that of the control. The infarction volume and apoptotic activity of the transplanted hBMSCs were significantly decreased, and functional outcomes were significantly improved in the hBMSC transplantation and bFGF treatment group than in the control group. This study demonstrates that bFGF significantly enhances histological and functional recovery when used in hBMSC transplantation therapy in TBI.
