    Japanese team’s antibody treatment returns 80% of finger function to paralyzed monkeys
    JIJI
    ⦁ Jan 5, 2018
    ⦁ KYOTO – A joint research team formed by Kyoto University and Osaka University has succeeded in repairing finger function in monkeys with spinal cord injuries by using an antibody to thwart a protein that blocks neural regeneration.
    ⦁ Details of the findings made by the team, which includes Kyoto University researcher Hiroshi Nakagawa, were published online by the British journal Cerebral Cortex on Friday.
    ⦁ The success precedes a clinical trial of the treatment that might be launched for spinal injury patients this year by a group led by Osaka University and Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corp., sources said.

    Genes involved in spinal cord repair of lamprey also present in mammals, study reveals

    January 16, 2018
    Many of the genes involved in natural repair of the injured spinal cord of the lamprey are also active in the repair of the peripheral nervous system in mammals, according to a study by a collaborative group of scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) and other institutions. This is consistent with the possibility that in the long term, the same or similar genes may be harnessed to improve spinal cord injury treatments.

    Spinal cord breakthrough sees almost half of patients with surviving nerves
    By medical reporter Sophie Scott and the Specialist Reporting Team's Rebecca Armitage
    Posted about 5 hours ago
    Australian researchers have found that half of all patients suffering from major spinal cord injuries still have surviving sensory nerve connections.
    Key points:
    ⦁ Brain activity was detected in 48 per cent of spinal cord injury patients
    ⦁ Researchers say the findings open the door for new targeted treatments
    ⦁ Patient James Stanley says it offers him "hope" for the future
    Dr Sylvia Gustin from Neuroscience Research Australia used cutting edge magnetic resonance imaging known as fMRI scans to record how 23 people living with spinal injuries responded to touch.
    The scientists were surprised that many people who couldn't feel the stimulation were still registering the touch in their brains.
    "We found using functional MRI, activity in the brain was detected in 48 per cent of people with clinically complete spinal cord injury," she said.
    "This means despite previously believing the communication to the brain had been severed in the injury, the messages are still being received by the brain.
    "So this is a very exciting breakthrough study."

    Spinal cord injury research: Bonus benefit to activity-based training
    UofL researchers report activity-based training improves urinary function after spinal cord injury, investigate effects of epidural stimulation
    Date:
    January 31, 2018
    Source:
    University of Louisville
    Summary:
    Researchers have discovered that the training, designed to help individuals with SCI improve motor function, also leads to improved bladder and bowel function and increased sexual desire.
    Research participants receiving activity-based training conducted by KSCIRC at Frazier Rehab Institute initially reported improvements in bladder, bowel and sexual function anecdotally. Charles Hubscher, Ph.D., professor and researcher at KSCIRC, has documented those changes in research published today in the journal PLOS ONE.

    Remedy Pharmaceuticals Co-founder and CEO Brings Clinical Trial and Company-Building Experience to ReNetX Bio Advisory Board
    Posted by: Nasdaq NewsFeed in Top News 4 days ago
    NEW HAVEN, Conn., Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sven Jacobson will be the first to admit that developing a new therapeutic for spinal cord injury is a challenging road. But the latest member of the ReNetX Advisory Board sees the promise of their first-in-class therapeutic in development to treat chronic spinal cord injury, and has the experience to help guide the clinical studies needed to move that drug forward.
    “Sven has deep experience in developing treatments for central nervous system injuries, including spinal cord injury,” says ReNetX CEO Erika Smith. “He can provide real insight into designing clinical trials that provide investors with the data they need.”

    February 19, 2018
    An experimental treatment that sends electrical currents through the spinal cord has improved "invisible" yet debilitating side effects for a B.C. man with a spinal cord injury.
    A diving accident six years ago left Isaac Darrel, of Langley, British Columbia, with a spinal cord injury. Side effects of the injury include dizziness, fluctuations in blood pressure and changes in bladder and bowel function
