I don't know. Much depends on the location of the ischemia. Note that the therapy that we are testing, i.e. umbiical cord blood cells and lithium treatment, is aimed at regenerating long tracts. If the ischemia damaged the neurons that the spinal tracts connect with, neuronal replacement will be necessary. We are working on that and I believe that there are several immunocompatiable neural stem cells that are approaching clinical trial. We are planning to test such therapies next.
