Breakthrough Study: Injecting Bone Marrow into Brain Could Help Stroke Patients

(Study Finds) — Injecting bone marrow into the brain could help stroke victims recover, suggests a new study.

Results of a clinical trial provide evidence that treating severe stroke patients with an injection of bone marrow cells may lead to a reduction in brain injury. The breakthrough could help reduce the impact from severe strokes, which often impair the movement of one side of the body.

The study, published in the journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine, was conducted by experts from the Institute for Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease at The University of Texas Health Science Center in the United States. CONTINUE
