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. Continue reading
