Transplantation of neuronal and nonneuronal cells into the brain
Transplantation into the central nervous system has the potential to develop into a very powerful therapeutic approach for a variety of neurological disorders. This chapter discusses the principles of transplantation, the brain as transplantation site, transplantation of neural cells, potential therapies with intracerebral grafts, transplantation of nonneural cells, human trials with neural tissue transplants, immunological risks of transplantation, the use of immunosuppression, transplantation of transfected cells, and direct injection of oligonucleotides, virus vectors, and other noncellular approaches for gene transfer.
