Can cerebral palsy be treated with stem cells?


T rophic factors from ASP stem cells are known to stimulate repair of damaged nervous tissue in both the brain and the spinal cord. Some of these are neurotrophic factors that promote neuronal growth, induce new blood vessel growth, neurogenesis and astroglial activation, encourage synaptic connection and axonal re-myelination, decrease programed cell death, and regulate microglial activatio
