“Stay clear of stem cell treatment for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI),” warned Professor Alan Mackay-Sim, Director of National Centre for Adult Stem Cell Research in Australia. He visited the Mary Verghese Institute of Rehabilitation attached to Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore in early December 2011.

He is one of the world’s foremost authorities on this subject and the first to try olfactory ensheathing cells on humans with SCI. In an email interview, he explained to S. Vaidya Nathan the current state of stem cell research for treating people with spinal cord injury.
