Perinatal hypoxia-ischemia is detrimental to the developing brain and leads to white matter injury and often cerebral palsy (CP), but the related pathophysiological mechanisms remain unclear. We investigated the early and long-lasting mechanisms of pathophysiology that may be responsible for the various symptoms induced by mild intrauterine hypo perfusion (MIUH) and found persistent neurodevelopmental disorders of CP in this model. We are now investigating a prevention lead based on mesenchymal stem cells that appears very promising.
