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.
For the first time ever, stem cells from umbilical cords have been converted into other types of cells, which may...
Inhibitory neurons in the spinal cord lose their connections to motor neurons in mouse models of ALS. While no connection between this deterioration to the development of ALS has been made, researchers say the loss of inhibitory signals could explain why motor neurons die in those with ALS.
