Mobilisation of endogenous haematopoietic stem cells and their use as treatment for subacute stroke
England, Timothy John (2012) Mobilisation of endogenous haematopoietic stem cells and their use as treatment for subacute stroke. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The potential application for stem cell therapy is vast. Despite a limited understanding of their mechanisms of action, clinical trials assessing stem cells in human stroke are underway. Colony stimulating factors (CSF) such as granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF), which have been used to mobilise haematopoietic stem cells (HSC), also show promise in treating stroke.
