Core Tip Central nervous system (CNS) disorders are the most challenging and difficult for functional repair. Neurons are still diminishing in many patients despite surgical and medical interventions. Stem cell therapy has been proposed as a viable option. Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) is a widely-studied human adult stem cell population. MSCs can be conveniently obtained from different accessible tissues. MSCs have high proliferative and differentiation abilities, providing an inexhaustible source of neurons and glia. MSCs also show neuroprotective effects and possess extraordinary immunomodulatory properties. These qualities heighten the clinical applicability of MSCs when dealing with the pathologies of CNS disorders.
