Engineering novel, nanofibrous scaffolds to promote neural regeneration in parkinson's disease

Rodriguez, Alexandra Laurence

Description

The debilitating symptoms that arise from damage to the central nervous system (CNS) have received significant attention due to the limited capacity for self-repair of both the brain and spinal cord. Cell replacement therapy (CRT) has emerged as a potential treatment alternative for CNS damage where by stem cells are implanted at the site of injury in order to replace damaged neural tissue. Clinical trials have demonstrated proof-of-concept that CRT could provide an effective alternative...[Show more]
