Cure 4 paralysis?: In sept issue cell, a stem cell line called nsi-566 (neuralstem) was successfully used to regenerate transected spinal cords in mice, with over 57% take of grafted cells. Multiple axons were generated which covered 17 spinal segments and formed reciprocal synaptic connectivity in grey matter. Neuralstem has applied for a trial to treat chronic spinal cord injury, and thereafter likely for acute. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
