Repair and Reconstruction of Peripheral Nerve Injuries: Treatment with G-CSF and Stromal Vascular Fraction

Project Details


While surgery is a cornerstone in treatment of peripheral nerve injuries, it is not a comprehensive approach, and outcome is unsatisfactory, especially sensory function. The present aim was to translate recent findings about stem- and progenitor cells to improve regenerative outcome, where the cells have to be autologous, available within the same surgical procedure, and minimally manipulated.

Layman's description

Vid nervskador i händer och armar får patienter, trots bästa behandling, bestående
förlust av känsel och muskelstyrka. I det här projektet undersökte jag om läkningen
skulle kunna förbättras genom att tillföra kroppsegna stamceller till skadeområdet.
