Abstract

Umbilical cord blood (UCB) is known to have stem/progenitor cells.We earlier showed that novel progenitors could be isolated from cryopreserved human UCB with high e/ciency. The multipotent progenitor cells were induced to differentiate into neurallineage cells under the appropriate condition. In this study, we con¢rmed these neurally inducedprogenitor cells (NPCs), containing higher quantities of nerve growth factor, promoted functional recovery in ratswith spinal cordinjury (SCI). Sprague^Dawleyrats with SCI achieved a modest improvement in locomotor rating scale until 10 weeks after transplantation of the NPCs. SCI rats treatedwithNPCs also showed somatosensory-evoked potentials were recovered, andgrafted cells especially exhibited oligodendrocytic phenotype around the necrotic cavity.These ¢ndings suggest that UCB-NPCs might be a therapeutic resource to repair damaged spinal cords.
