Abstract

Fehlings and colleagues investigated the use of directly reprogrammed human neural progenitor cells biased toward an oligodendrogenic fate (oNPCs) combined with sustained delivery of chondroitinase ABC to treat chronic spinal cord injury in an immunodeficient rat model. This combinatorial therapy increased long-term survival of oNPCs, facilitated greater oligodendrocyte differentiation, remyelination of the spared axons by engrafted oNPCs, and neurobehavioral recovery.
