A New Hope for Treating Spinal Cord Injury: 5 Points on InVivo Therapeutics’ Technology

Published: October 11, 2011

InVivo Therapeutics, based in Cambridge, Mass., was founded to focus on research and development of treatment for patients with spinal cord injuries (SCI). Currently, there are no effective treatments for these patients, and much of the research focuses on treating the symptoms of SCI instead of the underlying pathology.

However, InVivo has focused its efforts on both regenerative medicine and neuroprotection. Its scaffolds are designed to mitigate inflammation and prevent further cell death after SCI as well as support the repair and neuroplasticity recovery process.
