Doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Stanford University are infusing stem cells directly into the brains of stroke patients. The treatment uses bone marrow cells modified with a gene involved in brain development. The method has been tried in six people, and 12 more patients could be added. No adverse events have been reported.
