Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury report presents 12 R & D
stem cell-based product profiles, 10 company profiles and investors
information. This report emphasizes advantages and disadvantages of
particular cell therapies for spinal cord injury, characteristics and
origin of used cells, mechanism of their action, efficacy and adverse
effects, mode of delivery, design of clinical trials and result of
completed clinical studies.

When considering stem cell therapy, as the new avenue for the
treatment of spinal cord injury, it is important to remember that
spinal cord is a very complex structure containing a maze of various
cells, neuronal extensions, electrical signals and chemical
transmissions, presenting extremely difficult task for its regeneration
and functional recovery. In addition, injured spinal cord represents
one of the most hostile tissue environments for survival and
therapeutic effect of transplanted stem and progenitor cells.
