Scientist found genes to promote spinal cord regeneration

Humans can regenerate their peripheral nerves (PNS), but the regenerative ability does not extend to the central nervous system (CNS). So, what changed? Previously, the focus had been on identifying the cellular and molecular...

Gene therapy restores hand function after spinal cord injury in rats

https://youtu.be/dCyIiDcn9WU Researchers at King’s College London and the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience have shown that rats with spinal cord injuries can re-learn skilled hand movements after being treated with a gene therapy. People with spinal cord injury...

Scientists discover new way to help nerve regeneration in spinal cord injury

There is currently no cure for spinal cord injury or treatment to help nerve regeneration so therapies offering intervention are limited. People with severe spinal cord injuries can remain paralysed for life and this...

Spinal injury and ‘biorobotic control’ of the bladder

There are many challenges facing people with spinal cord injury – and walking again is often the least of their problems. Cambridge research could help patients take control of their lives once more. Spinal cord...

Chondroitinase Clinical Trial for dogs with severe spinal cord injury

"Chondroitinase improves the outcome after spinal cord injuries in lab animals; therefore it could also benefit dogs and people suffering from the same conditions." The purpose of our clinical trial is to help these severely...
