    Here is another study about autologous olfactory ensheathing cells.

    Source

    Autologous olfactory ensheathing cell transplantation in human paraplegia: a 3-year clinical trial
    A. Mackay-Sim,....

    .....There were no significant functional changes in any patients and no neuropathic pain. In one transplant recipient, there was an improvement over 3 segments in light touch and pin prick sensitivity bilaterally, anteriorly and posteriorly. We conclude that transplantation of autologous olfactory ensheathing cells into the injured spinal cord is feasible and is safe up to 3 years of post-implantation, however, this conclusion should be considered preliminary because of the small number of trial patients......


    I heard rumors from a "direct source" that Alan Mackay (Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia) is switching to neural stem cells which are alredy available in clinical grade from a few labs and look more promising than olfactory ensheathing cells.
