Thread: Olfactory ensheathing cells for SC repair: crucial differences between subpopulations

    Thumbs up Olfactory ensheathing cells for SC repair: crucial differences between subpopulations

    Is repairing the injured spinal cord by olfactory ensheathing cell (OEC) transplantation possible? A recent human trial in which a paralysed man regained some function after transplantation of partially purified OECs suggests that this therapy may be a successful approach (Tabakow et al., 2014). In another human trial in which olfactory mucosa lamina propria was transplanted, patients recovered some motor and sensory function (Wang et al., 2015). While these results show promise, it is clear that improvements are needed to provide patients with increased functional output.

    OEC's don't really work, that's been proven time and again over the past 15 years.

    In what mode don't they "really work?" For what kind of injuries? How long after the injury? Some model obviously brought them to the take the step of human trials
