There are over 103 published clinical trials using Adult Stem Cells to treat Stroke, Brain Injury and neurological conditions. Results, techniques, cellular implantation and protocols using adult stem cells are safe and have clinical evidence of patient benefit. ( see articles below for adult stem cells and brain injury )
Below is published peer reviewed research on using adult stem cells to treat stroke and other neurological conditions.

Basilar artery dissection is a rare occurrence, and is significantly associated with morbidity and mortality. To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of basilar artery dissection treated with mesenchymal stem cells.
We present the case of a 17-year-old Korean man who was diagnosed with basilar artery dissection. Infarction of the bilateral pons, midbrain and right superior cerebellum due to his basilar artery dissection was partially recanalized by intrathecal injection of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells. No immunosuppressants were given to our patient, and human leukocyte antigen alloantibodies were not detected after cell therapy.
This case indicates that intrathecal injections of mesenchymal stem cells can be used in the treatment of basilar artery dissection.
