Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury on Pace to Soon Enter Human Phase...

In an AAN plenary talk, Mark H. Tuszynski, MD, PhD, detailed the work he and colleagues have done to push stem cell therapy from the lab to the clinic to improve care for spinal...

Created Line of Spinal Cord Neural Stem Cells Shows Diverse Promise

Derived from human pluripotent stem cells, these diverse cells advance disease modeling and may provide new, scalable source of replacement cells for spinal cord injuries Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine...

In a break with dogma, myelin boosts neuron growth in spinal cord injuries

The molecule inhibits adult axon regeneration, but appears to stimulate young neurons Recovery after severe spinal cord injury is notoriously fraught, with permanent paralysis often the result. In recent years, researchers have increasingly turned to...

It’s Not a Rat’s Race for Human Stem Cells Grafted to Repair Spinal Cord...

Lengthy study finds that implanted neural stem cells grow slow and steady, and success needs to be measured accordingly More than one-and-a-half years after implantation, researchers at University of California San Diego School of...

Neural stem cells regenerate axons

SAN DIEGO — In a study at the University of California, San Diego and VA San Diego Healthcare, researchers were able to regenerate “an astonishing degree” of axonal growth at the site of severe...
