Spinal Cord Injury Repair

I wanted to feature yet more research on spinal cord injury repair.

Dr. Mark Tuszynski and his team of researchers at USCD recently published work that tested their hypothesis that chemotropic mechanisms would guide regenerating spinal cord axons to appropriate brainstem targets.

Laura Taylor Alto, Leif A Havton, James M Conner, Edmund R Hollis II, Armin Blesch & Mark H Tuszynski. Chemotropic guidance facilitates axonal regeneration and synapse formation after spinal cord injury. Nature Neuroscience. Published online: 2 August 2009 | doi:10.1038/nn.2365.

Their study included use of Neuromics’ NT-3 Antibody.
