Intraparenchymal Neural Stem/Progenitor Cell Transplantation for Ischemic Stroke Animals: A Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review
Metaregression analysis for related variables and effect sizes of infarct volume reduction and cylinder test. (a) An earlier intraparenchymal NSPC transplantation was associated with a smaller tissue loss (, ). (b) Rodent cell donors were associated with greater residual tissue (, ). (c) Allograft benefited the infarct volume reduction more (, ). (d) A relatively lower NSPC dosage was associated with larger cylinder test performance (, ). Values for effect sizes are Hedges’ .
