    Single injection 'provides pain relief in spinal injury'

    30 December 2011

    One injection into the spinal dorsal column straight after a spinal injury has occurred could provide long-term pain relief to patients, new research has shown.

    Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio made one injection of fibronectin into the spinal dorsal column immediately after spinal cord injury in an animal study.

    New Electrical Stimulation Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Receives Award
    posted on Dec 13 by Guest Author in the Disability News, Health, Healthcare, Paralysis Cures, Spinal Cord Injury, Technology category

    UCLA researchers Yury Gerasimenko and V. Reggie Edgerton, CalTech bioengineer Joel Burdick, and Susan Harkema, Rehabilitation Director at the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center, are the recipients of a 2011 Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award for their work on a new treatment that restores some voluntary movement in spinal cord injury patients by applying electrical stimulation directly onto the spinal cord. Also a recipient was their star patient, 25-year-old paraplegic Rob Summers, who was the first human ever to undergo this treatment.

    Summers was left paralyzed from his chest down after a 2006 hit-and-run accident crushed his dreams of playing in the Major Leagues. His injury and athletic dedication made him ideal for the treatment, which began after he underwent 24 months of physical therapy.

    0diggsdiggMedical Advances: Bionic Breakthroughs

    ATLANTA, GA (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- 250,000 Americans are living with a spinal cord injury and 53% have lost the use of their legs. The rest, have lost the use of their arms and legs. Now bionic breakthroughs are changing the game for these people, helping them to move around like never before.

    It’s a bionic breakthrough that even left the kids on glee speechless! Robotic legs that allow those who never thought they would walk again to take another step. Although it seems like Sci-Fi, it’s now reality for Jean Altomari.

    regenerative medicine for nervous system repair

    An early-stage Midwest biotech startup with a unique approach to treating damaged nervous system tissue is looking for its first round of capital.

    Axonia Medical has raised $1 million of the $3 million it hopes to secure in a Series A financing that would carry the Kalamazoo, Michigan-based biotech through large-animal trials of its regenerative nervous system repair technology.

    The nervous system has a limited ability to repair itself after injury, and there is a lack of effective treatment options to restore function, especially in brain and spinal cord injuries, according to Axonia Co-founder, President and CEO Harry Ledebur.

    InVivo Therapeutics to Present at the Fourth Annual BioTech Showcase 2012
    Company to Showcase Latest Advances in Spinal Cord Injury Treatment at Industry’s Largest Annual Healthcare Investor Conference

    Press Release: InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. – 8 hours ago

    Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (OTCBB: NVIV), a developer of groundbreaking technologies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries (SCI), today announced CEO Frank Reynolds will present InVivo’s most recent breakthroughs and provide a business update to potential investors during the Fourth Annual BioTech Showcase. The conference is scheduled for January 9-11th at the Parc 55 Wyndham in San Francisco.
    Reynolds is scheduled to present and participate in the Regenerative Medicine Insight Track on Tuesday, January 10th from 1:30-3:00 pm PST in the section on CNS, Ophthalmology and Spinal Injury. Frank will present an overview of InVivo’s innovative biomaterial scaffold technology. The company is currently awaiting FDA approval to move forward with its first human clinical study for acute SCI treatment using its proprietary scaffold to provide structural support to a damaged spinal cord to help prevent paralysis and improve recovery and prognosis for patients. The pilot study is expected to begin in 2012.

    Scientists Make The Spinal Cord Transparent

    Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology have made an astonishing innovation in imaging. This advance allows them to create a 3-D model of intact spinal tissue to determine whether the nerves are regenerating or not. Their findings were published in Nature Medicine.

    An in-depth look into spinal cord regeneration
    Scientists develop new methods for the study of spinal cord injury

    Bonn, December 25th, 2011. After spinal cord injury nerve fibers do not regenerate by themselves; loss of neuronal function up to complete paralysis is the consequence. When investigating new potential therapies, scientists are often confronted with an experimental problem: Neurons are embedded deep into the tissue of the spinal cord and thus difficult to access with microscopy methods. Scientists around Professor Frank Bradke, German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), have now met this experimental challenge with the development of a new technology. In animal models, they treated the tissue of the spinal cord so that it became permeable to light. Using this treatment, they were able to investigate the regeneration process under the microscope much faster and far more accurately than it was previously possible. The work was carried out during Bradke’s research period at the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology (Martinsried) in collaboration with researchers from the Vienna University of Technology and is now published in the prestigious journal Nature Medicine. Since July 2011, Bradke has been at the DZNE in Bonn.

    VIDEO: Defying Diagnosis, Jack Jablonski Moves Arms

    Click the video box on this page to hear Jack Jablonski's mother provide updates on his condition, discuss Jack's concern for the players that hit him, and new efforts to start "Jack's Pledge" hoping to reduce checking from behind in hockey.

    Jack Jablonski is already making strides.

    Eight days after a check sent the Benilde-St Margaret's hockey player into the boards breaking his spinal cord and paralyzing him, Jablonski moved his arms.

    In an interview with several media members prior to Benilde-St Margaret's hockey game Saturday night, Jack's mother Leslie delivered the encouraging news.

    Exoskeletons Will Replace Wheel Chairs
    Big Think Editors on January 7, 2012, 9:58 AM

    What's the Latest Development?

    A company based in Berkeley, California, has begun its mission to replace wheelchairs with exoskeletons, allowing people paralyzed by spinal cord injuries to walk again. Ekso Bionics will sell their exoskeletons to American and European health care providers this year; the walking devices will be used during physical therapy sessions. By the middle of 2012, the company plans to market an at-home version. The machine's weight is supported by the metallic legs, enabling users to walk with less exertion.

    What's the Big Idea?
