Can nanotechnology rewire an injured spinal cord?

According to the World Health Organisation, up to a half-million people around the world suffer a spinal cord injury each year. Often caused by road traffic crashes, accidents or violence, the loss of motor...

Regenerating Axons Across Complete Spinal Cord Injury

In a collaboration led by EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland and UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) in the USA, scientists have now understood the underlying biological mechanisms required for...

Spinal Neurons Grown From Stem Cells For First Time

Modern medicine has still not managed to crack the problem of spinal cord injuries that result in significant paralysis or loss of functional status. There are numerous factors that influence the inability to restore movement...

Paralyzed Mice Walk Following Drug Therapy

Spinal cord injury (SCI) commonly results in paralysis from the injury site down, even when the spinal cord hasn’t been severed completely. The remaining nerve cells that might bridge the gap appear to switch...

Researchers repair acute spinal cord injury in monkeys

Spinal cord injuries are among the most severe and difficult-to-treat medical conditions, usually resulting in permanent disability including loss of muscle function, sensation and autonomic functions. Medical research is now on the cusp of...

Researchers Turn Skin Cells into Motor Neurons Without Using Stem Cells

Cellular Renovation Why build something from the ground up when one can just renovate an already existing structure? Essentially, that’s what researchers from the University of Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis had in...

Lab-Grown Neurons Could Help Heal Spinal Injuries and Restore Movement

https://youtu.be/R4DqhI247eY Researchers grew human spinal cord neurons from stem cells and injected them into healthy mice, where they successfully connected with other neurons. The spinal cord is a rope of nerves relaying messages from the brain...

Molecule shown to repair damaged axons

Discovery could be key to treating brain and spinal cord injury A foray into plant biology led one researcher to discover that a natural molecule can repair axons, the thread-like projections that carry electrical signals...

‘Spinal tap’ saving crash victims from life in a wheelchair: Breakthrough nerve-preserving procedure could...

Spinal injury victims could be spared from paralysis thanks to a breakthrough nerve- preserving procedure developed by British doctors. It is the first treatment to tackle inflammation of the spinal cord, which can occur...
