    Tracking transplanted cells in humans

    CLEVELAND, Ohio - An early clinical trial testing the use of a patient's own stem cells to treat, or even reverse, multiple sclerosis has shown some positive results, Cleveland Clinic researchers reported this week.
    ...
    "The local team also plans a trial that will track the MSCs after they're injected, which remains an unanswered question within the stem cell field where the cells go, where they migrate to within the body, and whether they survive. The team hopes to label the cells and track them by magnetic resonance imaging.

    Both studies should be underway by next year".

    That is very interesting also for SCI.
