A Mayo Clinic study shows stem cells derived from patients’ own fat are safe and may improve sensation and movement after traumatic spinal cord injuries.

A Mayo Clinic study shows stem cells derived from patients’ own fat are safe and may improve sensation and movement after traumatic spinal cord injuries. The findings from the phase 1 clinical trial appear in Nature Communications. The results of this early research offer insights into the potential of cell therapy for people living with spinal cord injuries and paralysis for whom options to improve function are extremely limited.

“This study demonstrates the safety and potential benefit of stem cells and regenerative medicine,” says Mohamad Bydon, M.D., a Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon and first author of the study. “Spinal cord injury is a complex condition. Future research may show whether stem cells and other treatments could be part of a new paradigm of treatment to improve outcomes for patients.”
