Novel enzyme treatment may reduce inflammation and scarring that prevent neuronal regeneration, TAU researchers say
Monash University researchers have restored movement and regenerated nerves using stem cells in zebra fish where the spinal cord is severely damaged.
An experimental treatment that sends electrical currents through the spinal cord has improved ‘invisible’ yet debilitating side effects for a Canadian man with a spinal cord injury.
Extended activity-based training with epidural stimulation resulted in ability to stand and move without stimulation. A research participant at the University of Louisville with a complete spinal cord injury, who had lost motor function below the level of the injury, has regained the ability to move his legs voluntarily and stand six years after his injury.
