    The research being described here is more than just about treating acute spinal cord injury. The scientists have Purdue have discovered a new method of delivering drugs, proteins, and other materials to the injured spinal cord. They used spinal cord injury as the model with which to demonstrate their technique. It doesn't mean that it has to be restricted to acute spinal cord injury? Nor does it mean that all acute spinal cord injury research is automatically not useful to people with chronic spinal cord injury.

    Wise.
