I just loved this article and the whole story of how this dog was saved from a life of paralysis by cells implanted into his nose. Now that is a break through that we can celebrate. Thank you Cher, for submitting this "feel good" story.

I believe in autologous transplants the cells come from the patient him/herself. I just looked up autologous.

The cells weren't actually implanted in the nose-

the cells were extracted from the noses of healthy dogs, and implanted to the injury site.

"According to the BBC, thirty-four dogs were part of the trial, in which healthy olfactory ensheathing cells from the lining of the nose were extracted, grown in the lab, and then implanted at the site of injury."
