    Spinal Cord Stem Cells May Act as Nerve Repair System



    TUESDAY, July 22 (HealthDay News) -- Adult stem cells that may prove valuable in efforts to develop nonsurgical treatments for spinal cord injuries have been identified by researchers in the United States and Sweden.

    They say it may be possible to develop drugs that boost the ability of these stem cells to repair damaged nerve cells.

    An adult's spinal cord contains only a small number of stem cells, which proliferate slowly or rarely and don't promote regeneration on their own. But some research has shown that spinal cord stem cells grown in the lab and returned to the injury site can restore some physical function in paralyzed rodents and primates.

    imagine where we would be had we forcused the sci community and researchers on the stem cells in the cord, LIKE I SAID AND STEVEN SAID, instead of sitting around waiting for esc....

    the problem with many ppl on the forum is they want to force esc to be the cure. i understand wanting to uncover every stone, but not at the expense of other more promising therapies.

    What are the more promising therapies? Surely not this one in which we are told to "imagine" the science.

    when you want to learn about stem cell you need to do basic discoveries in esc to unlock the genes/proteins an other chem to know what if any adult stem cells can be created to produce similar results carefull analysis, key to research .go a head an tie our researchers hands an let bio tec go over seas where they get it the stems must be studied all together ,then see how the genesis of creation transpires an molecular level .
