conducted by researchers from the University of South Florida and Saneron CCEL Therapeutics, Inc
ound that targeted immune suppression using stem cells derived from human umbilical cord blood reduced Alzheimer's disease progression in a mouse model
The ongoing research project has been funded in part by Cryo-Cell International, Inc., an industry leader in stem cell innovation and one of the nation's largest and most established family cord blood banks. Additional study sponsors are the National Institutes of Health's STTR grant program, Florida High Tech Corridor Matching grant program, and the Johnnie B.
