Stem Cells Grafted Into Rat Spinal Cords Show Growth, Study Says

Recent study results indicate neurons derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and grafted into rats post-spinal cord injury (SCI) produced cells with tens of thousands of axons, extending virtually the entire length of the animals’ central nervous system.
