Abstract

In the last few decades, the idea of being able to repair the brain by introducing new cells to repair the damaged areas has become an accepted potential treatment for neurodegenerative diseases. The stromal cell fraction of many tissues and organs has shown in vitro neurogenic differentiation; however, these cell types are limited by availability, invasiveness of extraction and in some cases limited proliferative capacity. Human endometrial adult stem cells have many clinical advantages over the other stem cells. Here, we propose the hypothesis that endometrial adult stem cells may be induced into neural cells.
