Raisman, a UCL spinal injury specialist, worked with surgeons at Wroclaw University Hospital in Poland to remove one of Fidyka's olfactory bulbs, which give people their sense of smell, and transplant his olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) and olfactory nerve fibroblasts (ONFs) into the damaged area.
In the study, funded by the Medical Research Council, the dogs had olfactory ensheathing cells from the lining of their nose removed.
Huang extracts "olfactory ensheathing cells" from aborted babies, the Boston Globe reported.
Olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) are specialized glial cells found in nerves and brain tissue associated with the sense of smell.
Olfactory ensheathing cells connect the lining of the nose with the brain, giving us our sense of smell.
Several groups worldwide have carried out experiments on rats with olfactory ensheathing cells, which connect the lining of the nose with the brain to transmit smell messages and some have proved highly successful.
