Reprogrammed stem cells to treat spinal-cord injuries …

By admin

Scientists in Japan now have permission to inject 'reprogrammed' stem cells into people with spinal-cord injuries. An upcoming trial will mark the first time that induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells have been used to treat spinal-cord injuries, after a committee at Japans health ministry approved the study on 18 February. IPS cells are created by inducing cells from body tissue to revert to an embryonic-like state, from which they can develop into other cell types

Spinal Cord Injury Research Advances with New Stem Cells

By admin

At Spinal Cord, were excited to share that researchers at the University of California, San Diego successfully created spinal cord neural stem cells (NSCs) that could have clinical applications in spinal cord injury and disorder treatments. The spinal cord injury research, conducted by postdoctoral scholar Hiromi Kumamaru and Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the UCSD Translational Neuroscience Institute Mark Tuszynski, grafted the cultured cells into the spinal cords of rats with spinal cord injuries (SCIs).

Spinal Cord Injuries Are Not JustCaused by Trauma When you think of spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic events like a serious car accident may come to mind. While its true that car accidents are the leading cause of traumatic SCI, you may be surprised that non-traumatic diseasessuch as a spinal tumorcan also cause SCI. SCI involves damage to the spinal cord that temporarily or permanently changes how it functions

Spinal Neurons Grown From Stem Cells For First Time | News …

By admin

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 or autonomous bodily control to these patients. A prominent example of these is the inability to cultivate new neurons that make up and power the spinal cord.

Stem cell-filled implants helped repair spinal cord damage in animals, according to a study led by UC San Diego scientists. If all goes well, the implants with neural stem cells could be ready for testing in human patients in a few years. Rats with completely severed spinal cords regained some voluntary motion after getting the implants, said the study, published Monday in the journal Nature Medicine

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury- Treatment for …

By admin

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury-Spinal cord injury is one of the progressively degenerating, crippling disorders attributing towards the dislocation of bones and vertebrae; which is a general result of trauma and/or injury. The accidental injury generally damages connecting nerves internally; in order to halt the back and forth communication between brain and rest of the body parts. This communication gap is the primary cause of partial or complete loss of movement, paralysis as well as numbness.

Scientists regenerate spinal cord in injured rats with …

By raymumme

With patches of stem cells on their broken spinal cords, partially paralyzed rats once againreached out and grabbed distant treats, researchers report in Nature Medicine. While previous studies have shown progress in regenerating certain types of nerve cells in injured spinal cords, the study is the first to coax the regrowth of a specific set of nerve cells, called corticospinal axons. These bundles of biological wiring carry signals from the brain to the spinal cord and are critical for voluntary movement
