Diseases that involve the central nervous system (CNS) pose one of the most difficult challenges in human therapy. Cell-mediated therapy (CMT) is a uniquely complex and powerful approach that offers an unparalleled advantage. This chapter reviews work in the area of CMT with a bias towards understanding the critical mechanisms that underlie successful CMT for CNS storage disease. It highlights the advantages offered by employing cells as the therapeutic agent.
