Abstract [en]

Stem cell transplantation holds great hope for the replacement of damaged cells in the nervous system. However, poor long-term survival after transplantation and insufficiently robust differentiation of stem cells into specialized cell types in vivo remain major obstacles for clinical application. Here, we report the development of a novel technological approach for the local delivery of exogenous trophic factor mimetics to transplanted cells using specifically designed silica nanoporous particles. We demonstrated that delivering Cintrofin and Gliafin, established peptide mimetics of the ciliary neurotrophic factor and glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, respectively, with these particles enabled not only robust functional differentiation of motor neurons from transplanted embryonic stem cells but also their long-term survival in vivo. We propose that the delivery of growth factors by mesoporous nanoparticles is a potentially versatile and widely applicable strategy for efficient differentiation and functional integration of stem cell derivatives upon transplantation.

Abstract [en]

After traumatic injuries to the brachial plexus there is a risk that one or more of the spinal roots are torn from the spinal cord, known as avulsion injury. This often leads to paralysis and chronic pain, notoriously difficult to treat with current pharmacotherapy. Surgical treatment may improve motor function but sensory recovery is usually poor as sensory axons fail to establish functional connections inside the spinal cord. The aims of this thesis were to develop a model for dorsal root avulsion in rodents in order to investigate the potentials of stem cell therapy for enhancing sensory regeneration after spinal root avulsion. Two different types of stem cells, embryonic and neural crest stem cells, have been transplanted to the avulsion model and analysed using immunohistochemical methods. The results indicate that stem cells survive after transplantation to the avulsed dorsal root and associate with regenerating axons. Furthermore, the different stem cells display different phenotypes after transplantation where embryonic stem cells give rise to neurons located outside the spinal cord that could serve as projection neurons whereas the neural crest stem cells form elongated tubes outlining the avulsed dorsal root and are associated with regenerating neuronal fibers. We have also discovered that the neural crest stem cells migrate into the damaged spinal cord as single cells. The neural crest stem cells also display a diversity in generating both neuronal and glial cells that may have different beneficial effects in neural repair following dorsal root avulsion. To improve the survival of stem cell transplants, the potentials of co-transplanting embryonic stem cells together with nanoparticle delivered growth factor mimetics has been investigated. The results indicate that nanoparticle delivered growth factors improve both transplant survival and maturation in comparison to untreated controls and may be a promising strategy in stem cell transplantation.

Abstract [en]

Severe injury may result in disconnection between the peripheral and central nervous system. Regeneration of the central portion of sensory neurons into the spinal cord is notoriously poor in adult mammals, with low regenerative drive and an unpermissive central environment, most likely resulting in persistent loss of sensory function. A variety of strategies have been addressedto augment regeneration, including application of growth promoting factors, counteraction of inhibitory molecules, and provision of growth permissive substrates. Stem cells have been investigated in these contexts, as well as for the possibility of providing new neurons to act as a relay between the periphery and spinal cord. Here we have investigated different sources of neural stem cells for their ability to form neurons and glia after transplantation to the periphery; to project axons into the spinal cord; and to assist regeneration of surviving sensory neurons. These have been performed at two locations: the "dorsal root ganglion cavity", and the transitional zone following dorsal root avulsion. Neurons and glia were generated form mouse boundary cap neural crest stem cells and embryonic stem cell derived ventral spinal cord progenitors, and in addition to this, regeneration of sensory fibers was observed after transplantation of human fetal spinal cord derived progenitors and human embryonic stem cell derived ventral spinal cord progenitors. Further, delivery of neurotrophic factor mimetics via mesoporous silica nanoparticles proved a valuable tool for stem cell survival and differentiation. While technological advances make in vivo differentiation a realistic goal, our findings indicate that so far assisting regeneration of host sensory fibers to reconnect with the spinal cord by transplantation of stem cells is a more reliable strategy.
