BACKGROUND Penetrating traumatic brain injury induces chronic inflammation that drives persistent tissue loss long after injury. Absence of endogenous reparative neurogenesis and effective neuroprotective therapies render injury-induced disability an unmet need. Cell replacement via neural stem cell transplantation could potentially rebuild the tissue and alleviate penetrating traumatic brain injury disability. The optimal transplant location remains to be determined. METHODS To test if subacute human neural stem cell (hNSC) transplant location influences engraftment, lesion expansion, and motor deficits, rats (n = 10...

For the Pearson family of Beverly, it’s not the boredom or staying inside these days that’s painful – it’s having no way of explaining to their son why it’s like this. “Logan is 18-years-old now.
