Stem Cell Protein Curbs Brain Swelling (1 of 2)

Caption: Working biological model of how mesenchymal stem cells inhibit vascular leak after traumatic brain injury through production of TIMP3. This image relates to a paper that appeared in the Nov. 21, 2012, issue of Science Translational Medicine, published by AAAS. The paper, by T. Menge at Blood Systems Research Institute in San Francisco, Calif., and colleagues was titled, “Mesenchymal Stem Cells Regulate Blood-Brain Barrier Integrity Through TIMP3 Release After Traumatic Brain Injury.”
