‘Exciting’ progress for spinal injury drug

Published: June 12, 2015

Anthony FaingaaPioneers in the field of neurological therapy want paramedics to be armed with a breakthrough drug to quickly stop the damage spreading.

It’s the latest stage in the development of a project which started in 2011 at the University of Auckland.

The potential to carry the drug in the back of ambulances follows trials on rodents. Those tests confirmed a dose of peptide medicine could be administered into people’s veins, instead of straight to the spinal cord.

Intracellular Sigma PeptideCase Western Reserve Scientists Design Intracellular Sigma Peptide (ISP) to Promote Functional Recovery Following Spinal Cord Injury

Case Western Reserve scientists have developed a new chemical compound that shows extraordinary promise in restoring function lost to spinal cord injury. The compound, which the researchers dubbed intracellular sigma peptide (ISP), allowed paralyzed muscles to activate in more than 80 percent of the animals tested. The remarkable study, partly funded by the National Institutes of Health, appears in the December 3 edition of the journal Nature.
