In order to promote the clinical use of neural progenitor or precursor cells for treating neurological diseases and damage, we need to standardize culture procedures for these cells. The Chinese Association of Neurorestoratology put forward these standards for training operators, standardized use and management of materials and equipment, standardized isolation and culture for neural progenitor/precursor cells, and the standardized management in preservation, transport, and related safe

These cultures and quality control standards also include the Good Manufacturing Practice environment, routine maintenance as well as the monitoring and reporting of the clinical-grade neural progenitor cells. The aim of these standards is to improve the therapeutic efficacy and minimize the possible side effects from lake of quality control.
