Researchers have developed a novel 3D printed scaffolding that mimics natural anatomy and boost stem cell treatment for spinal cord repair. While the initial scaffolds have been designed for rat models of SCI, researchers report the approach is scalable to humans.
Researchers say a novel enzyme treatment may reduce inflammation and scarring that prevents neural regeneration in spinal cord injury.
Researchers have successfully restored the ability to walk in mice paralyzed as a result of spinal cord injuries with the help of a small molecular compound.
Researchers have successfully used stem cell therapy to regenerate neurons in damaged areas of zebra fish spinal cords. The treatment helped to restore movement following SCI. The findings raise the possibility of developing new treatments for humans suffering paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury.
Researchers have successfully restored hand function and motor skills in rats who suffered paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury.
By transplanting V2a interneurons, researchers improved respiratory function in mice with spinal cord injuries, a new study reports.
A new study challenges conventional belief that myelin can inhibit neuronal growth. Researchers report rat myelin stimulated axon outgrowths in neural precursor cells, and human iPSCs.
Using electrochemical stimulation and robot assisted rehabilitation techniques, researchers restore walking ability in a paraplegic rat. The study reports reorganization of neural branching in the reticular formation leads to new connections and is key to motor skill recovery.
