Watch this dr Kurtzberg presentation ( in English from 12 minutes)
From the 20:54, Dr Joanne Kurtzberg says It’s the CD14 cells in cord blood that is special and helps repair brain cells from low oxygen in brain or hypoxic injury
And as I know nobody doing yet hole donor cord blood HLA matched exept Duke ( and yet in clinical trails)….
More on Dr Kurtzberg’s presentation of the good monocytes in cord blood cells:
10:38 [Referring to cord blood cells]…and about 10% are a kind of cells called the monocyte. Monocyte in cord blood is unique and it’s the cell that we think is helping patients with cp and autism. And we don’t think it’s helping because it’s engrafting in the brain or turning into neurons or turning into brain cells. We think it’s helping because it puts out chemicals that signal cells that’s already in the brain to repair damage.
human UCB (hUCB) is a complex internal environment rich in a variety of stem/progenitor cell populations, such as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), UCB monocytes (including T regulatory cells (Tregs) and monocyte-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs)) and MSCs…etc….
UCB mononuclear/ whole blood cells in the perinatal ischemic and hypoxic brain model can reduce the inflammatory response to treat injury. To evaluate whether transplanted cells relieve neuroinflammation, there are two indicators:
(1) reduce the infiltration of CD4 þ T cells into the brain; and (2) reduce microglial activation.
all UCB cell types except EPCs have CNS immunoregulatory capacity.
Tregs and monocytes are present in the normal body at a considerable level, and are indispensable in the regulation of peripheral and central immune responses.
« Currently, the use of UCB-based interventions for CP is limited as the components of UCB are complex and possess different therapeutic mechanisms. These can be categorized by three aspects: homing and neuroregeneration, trophic factor secretion, and neuroprotective effects. »
There are several paper about cord blood CD14+ cells neuroprotective action ( CB Monocytes – CD14+ cells protect brain cells from Oxygen and Glucose Deprivation in Cortex). Even more: cord blood cells contain many neurotrophic factors, which are very important for brain regeneration.
•Brain-derived neurotrophic factor,
Nerve growth factor-
•Glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor –
•Cerebral dopamine neurotrophic factor –
•Mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor
•Pigment epithelium-derived factor.
