Abstract

Peripheral blood is an available source of adult stem cells for both fundamental research and clinical use. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) contain a number of different multipotent populations of progenitor cells and possess a potential to differentiate into various types of cells under appropriate conditions. We have evaluated a regenerative potential of PBMCs embedded into fibrin matrix (FM) in a model of pig spinal cord injury. The distribution of transplanted PBMCs in the injured spinal cord was previously evaluated, which demonstrated the ability of these cells to penetrate into deep layers of the spinal cord and to concentrate mainly in the grey matter. The pilot study conducted demonstrated that the tissue structure could be improved and the conduction along posterior columns of the spinal cord could be partially recovered in animals in the setting of FM+РВМCs application. The multiplex analysis of blood serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) showed the cytokine imbalance to occur without significantly shifting towards pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory cytokine cascades in the setting therapy provided.
