Longitudinal Magnetic Resonance Imaging Tracking of Transplanted Neural Progenitor Cells in the Spinal Cord Utilizing the Bright-Ferritin Mechanism

Investigators applied a novel bright-ferritin magnetic resonance imaging mechanism to track human neural progenitor cells (hNPC) transplants longitudinally and on demand in the rat spinal cord. They genetically modified hNPCs to stably overexpress human ferritin.
