    Cancer drug may help spinal cord injuries

    "The good thing about Taxol is that it actually does both things at once," Bradke told MyHealthNewsDaily. "On the one hand, it basically gets these neurons to start to grow, like a crazy driver, and at the same time, it also reduces these stop signs, it reduces the scarring process," he said.

    Interesting. Thanks for posting. My Dad was on Taxol for Cancer treatment for a while. It gave us a little more time.
