    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

    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.
