    Loyola Medicine has launched a research program to study a new treatment approach for stroke and spinal cord injury patients that involves electrically stimulating nerves.
    The Kalmanovitz Central Nervous System Repair Research Program is funded by a $500,000 gift from the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation. The program is directed by Loyola neurosurgeon Russ Nockels, MD, who has been treating and studying spinal cord injuries for 30 years.

    Recovered Quadriplegic Inspires People with Spinal Cord Injuries

    After breaking his neck in several places, Pat Rummerfield can walk and run
    Pat Rummerfield is used to being described as a walking miracle. More than three decades after breaking his neck in several places, Rummerfield cannot only walk, he can also run and is considered to be a fully-functional quadriplegic.

    'Walking miracle'

    The human spinal cord is a crucial pathway for nerves connecting the brain with the rest of the body. Unlike most critical body parts, the spinal cord does not repair itself if damaged. While there have been promising advances in research in recent years, there is currently no cure for spinal cord injury. Still, there are a few extraordinary cases of people, like Rummerfield, who have recovered.

    Rummerfield now devotes his life to helping others who have suffered similar injuries. He spends a week every month working with patients at the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s International Center for Spinal Cord Injury, in Baltimore, Maryland. Technically, his job title at the institute is spokesperson and fundraiser. But his most important role is to be there for patients who first and foremost need his moral support.

    New hope for spinal cord injuries: Silk from moths can be used to stabilize the injury and promote repair, according to experts
    10/16/2018 / By Frances Bloomfield
    British scientists have discovered a novel method of treating spinal cord injuries: modified silk from the Chinese Oak Silkmoth (Antheraea pernyi). By cleaning and sterilizing the silk produced by the larvae of this species, the researchers claim that this material could support nerve cell growth throughout affected areas of the spine.
    As of this writing, there are no known cures for spinal cord damage. This is partly due to cavity and scar tissue formations becoming “formidable barriers” that hinder the restoration of proper spine function. Thus, the researchers wrote in their paper, “natural silks are considered increasingly for medical applications because they are biocompatible, biodegradable and in selected cases promote tissue growth.”
    For the purposes of their study, the researchers turned to petri dish tests on rat cells. The modified Chinese Oak Silkmoth silk, which had been supplied by Oxford Biomaterials Ltd., proved to have the important and desirable properties to serve as a “scaffold” for spinal repair. (Related: Silk fibers may help repair nerve damage in humans.)
