The Nose Knows – Intranasal Delivery of Stem Cells to Treat Neurological Disease

Intranasal delivery may facilitate stem cell treatment to the brain.

Researchers from StemGenex have announced plans to treat neurological diseases utilizing intranasal [through the nose] delivery of mesenchymal stem cells.   The current research indicates stem cells were able to pass the blood brain barrier by travelling up the olfactory nerves, providing a novel approach to stem cell delivery. Such an approach would represent a significant advancement in regenerative medicine.

It has been demonstrated that in compromised brain tissue or brains with lesions, stem cells fuse with mature neurons to promote regeneration.  Additional testing is underway to measure the impact of intranasal delivery of stem cells to treat brain disease and trauma.

The research is an example of how scientists are gaining insights that will facilitate more effective treatments leading to better outcomes.  To learn more about the value of preserving your own mesenchymal stem cells for use in future therapies and how to bank your own stem cells through a non-evasive and affordable method by recovering your dental pulp stem cells, visit StemSave or call 877-783-6728 (877-StemSave) today.
