(Worthy News) – Israeli scientists from Tel Aviv University say they have engineered 3D human spinal cord implants to treat paralysis, which if successful in clinical trials in human patients could help people stand up and walk again.
The study, conducted in mice and led by Prof. Tal Dvir of the Sagol Center for Regenerative Biotechnology, showed an 80 percent success rate in restoring walking ability. The results were published in the peer-reviewed journal Advanced Science.
“The model animals underwent a rapid rehabilitation process, at the end of which they could walk quite well,” Dvir said Monday. “This is the first instance in the world in which implanted engineered human tissues have generated recovery in an animal model for long-term chronic paralysis — which is the most relevant model for paralysis treatments in humans.” [ Source: Algemeiner (Read More…) ]
