The researchers have currently been actively investigating the possibilities for transplantation of the stem cells of various sources for treatment of the ischemic and degenerative diseases of the nervous systemInfluence of transplantation of the hippocampal neural progenitor cells (NPCs) on endogenous neurogenesis in the mice after brain ischemia-reperfusion induced by 20 min occlusion of both carotid arteries has been studied. Following 24 hours after occlusion the NPCsisolated from the hippocampus of the FVB-Cg-Tg(GFPU)5Nagy/J mice transgenic by the GFP gene were transplanted stereotactically into hippocampal CA1 area of the experimental animals. For evaluating neurogenesis in the hippocampus of the ischemic animals we used immunohistochemical staining of the brain slices for BrdU and doublecortin (DCX). It has been found that transplantation of neural progenitor cells increased the number of BrdU- and DCX-positive cells in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus after short-term global ischemia.
These data allow admit that NPC transplantation to the ischemic animals influences on endogenous adaptation processes in the brain and on the neurogenesis, in particular.

Keywords: neural stem cells, stereotaxic transplantation, brain ischemia, neurogenesis, hippocampus.
