Answer

Answer

A number of clinical trials (mainly phase I and II) on the effects and safety of stem cell therapy for neurogenic bladder after SCI have shown promising results. However, most were not randomized trials, did not have a control group, and included a small number of patients. High-quality  randomized trials are still needed before stem cell therapy can be considered for use in clinical settings. [20]
