Possible Pain Relief Breakthrough for Spinal Cord Injuries

Published: November 30, 2011

Researchers have found a possible breakthrough for spinal cord injuries with a find that a one-time injection of a protein into the cord immediately after an injury can limit pain for an extended period of time.

The researchers led by the Cleveland Clinic found that the naturally existing protein in humans, fibronectin, supports the survival, growth and communication of neurons in the brain and spinal cord.
