Full Study Title: Study of Human Central Nervous System (CNS) Stem Cell Transplantation in Cervical Spinal Cord Injury

Summary

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of human central nervous system stem cell transplantation into patients with traumatic injury in the cervical region of the spinal cord.

Participant Eligibility
