Systemic human CD34+ cells populate the brain and activate host mechanisms to counteract nigrostriatal degeneration


Aim: Here we investigated the neuroprotective potential of systemic CD34+ human cord blood cells (hCBCs) in a 6-hydroxydopamine rat model of Parkinson’s disease. Methods: Purified CD34+ hCBCs were intravenously administered to rats subjected to 6-hydroxydopamine 24 h earlier, and behavioral and immunohistological analysis performed.
