Figure 6: First autologous cord blood transplantation after global hypoxic-ischemic brain damage caused by cardiac arrest in a boy 2.5 years of age (see [43]). Nine weeks after the insult the patient (L. B.) received an autologous cord blood transplantation to treat cerebral palsy (January 27, 2009). The boy was normally developed when brain damage occurred, that was followed by a quadriplegic persistent vegetative state (see video S3 in Supplementary Material [44]). From left to right: A.
