New Spinal Cord Research

New Spinal Cord Research

A recent article in the August 8th 2010 issue of Scientific American has outlined the recent developments in spinal cord research. For centuries, scientists were uniform in their opinion that severe spinal cord paralysis was a permanent condition. Severe injuries to the nerves in the spinal cord were considered untreatable and patients were often committed to longterm rehabilitation and confinement to skilled nursing facilities. Recent research has given researchers hope that someday paralysis patients may eventually reach some degree of recovery. Specifically, researchers have found a way to block certain enzymes in mice that inhibit spinal cord regeneration. It remains to be seen whether spinal cord regeneration translates into regained motor function.
