    As you can see... There is little to no information given, but the title is really irking my patience. I hope they publish it soon, I am giving a presentation on SCI's in class and I was hoping I could discuss other treatments.

    From the little summary I got from Columbia University's site, it seems like a very treacherous treatment, however perhaps it could work. What are your thoughts on nerve grafting?

    Here is a link to a related article (2010).

    Basically they performed a nerve graft from C7 to T1 using ChABC to suppress CSPG. There was evidence of axon growth into and out of the graft into the spinal cord but...
    The severity of injury was not sufficient to study clinical improvement.
    The efficacy of treatments in large animal models will best provide preclinical evidence that is necessary before moving forward with human SCI trials
    FYI The article sites the following
