Abstract Spinal cord injury is a severely debilitating condition leading to neurological dysfunction, loss of independence, respiratory failure, psychological morbidities, and an increased lifelong disability. The injury triggers a complex cascade of pathological processes, culminating in formation of a scar. A bridging biomaterial construct that allows the axons to grow through has been studied for the repair of injured spinal cord. In the present study, two different compositions of adECM/GO scaffolds, seeded with neural stem cells were used. The results showed no cytotoxicity, and upregulated proliferation. Both compositions seem to favor NSCs differentiation towards OPCs, whereas one of them significantly increased differentiation into neurons. Collectively, these results suggest that adECM/GO scaffolds comprise a promising innovative treatment strategy for the injured spinal cord.
