Sammanfattning : Injury and neurodegenerative conditions of the spinal cord can lead to paralysis and loss of sensation. Cell therapeutic approaches can restore sensory innervation of the spinal cord following injury and protect spinal cord cells from degeneration. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Neural stem cell self-renewal and differentiation are tightly regulated events during CNS development, leading to cell division into new neural stem cells or the formation of neurons and glial cells. This thesis focuses on the cellular responses induced by known and novel factors in neural stem and progenitor cells (NSPCs). LÄS MER
3. Directing stem cells and progenitors towards neuronal differentiation - implications for experimental therapies for Parkinson's disease
Sammanfattning : The insight that stem- and progenitor-cells contribute to replacement of nerve cells in the adult central nervous system is the basis of modern therapies for structural brain repair. Their goal is to protect, support and stimulate endogenous stem cells in areas affected by disease and to replace lost cells by transplanting in vitro generated, tailored nerve cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Neuroblastoma (NB) is one of the most commonly diagnosed extracranial tumors in children below five years of age. Moreover, NB accounts for almost 12-15% of all childhood cancer related fatalities. To date, the origin of NB has been linked to the neural crest derived sympathoadrenal progenitor cells. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Dorsal root avulsion injuries result in permanent impairment of sensory functions due to the disconnection of the peripheral nervous system from the spinal cord. Strategies aiming for the functional reconnection of sensory neurons with their targets in the spinal cord dorsal horn need to overcome the axonal growth non-permissive glial scar and provide a growth promoting environment.
