Stanford Researchers Track Human Stem Cells Transplanted Into Rat,Brain

All of this adds up to encouraging news for researchers hoping to use stem cells to treat human disease. For now, nobody knows the best way of inserting the cells, the conditions that are best for cell survival, or the optimal timing after an injury for when transplanting the cells is most effective. With the ability to watch the cells in real time, researchers can compare different techniques to learn what works best.

The cells used in this study were similar to those that are part of a clinical trial for a childhood disorder called Batten's disease. Steinberg said he and others are interested in testing these or other stem cells as a way of treating a wide range of diseases.

Other Stanford researchers who participated in this work include Tonya Bliss, PhD, research associate; David Stellwagen, PhD, postdoctoral scholar; Joan Greve, graduate student; Robert Malenka, MD, PhD, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences; Michael Moseley, PhD, professor of radiology; and Theo Palmer, PhD, associate professor of neurosurgery.

The work was funded by grants from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Russell and Elizabeth Siegelman, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, Bernard and Ronni Lacroute and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
