What Are MSC-NPs And How Are They Used?
A Patient’s Stem Cells Are Manipulated to become MSC-NPs MSC-NPs are a population of autologous (self) cells that have the potential to repair the damage to the nerves of your brain and spinal cord caused by MS.
MSC-NPs Are Injected into The Patient
Autologous stem cells (unspecified cells) are taken from the bone marrow and are called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The MSCs expanded from the bone marrow are then manipulated in the laboratory to make them into neural (brain) progenitor cells called MSC-NPs. Research has shown that MSC-NPs have the ability to promote repair and regeneration of the central nervous system in multiple sclerosis.
