This new technology is especially promising for the treatment of HD in that genetically engineering MSCs to release RNAi does not interfere with their growth, capacity to differentiate, or disrupt the normal karyotype of the cells. Theoretically, combining the beneficial effects of RNAi with the propensity of MSCs to create a favorable microenvironment through the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines and neurotrophic factors provides great therapeutic promise for the treatment of HD.
