    UPMC’s clinical trial showing promise with spinal cord injuries
    by /p/post-gazette.com Pittsburgh Post- Gazette 2d ago


    By David Templeton / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Three years ago, Michael Fraser broke his neck in a diving accident near his Vandergrift home but remembers little about it.
    But in April, the man with quadriplegia underwent an experimental neural stem-cell procedure that wasn’t only a life-changing experience but could represent the first interventional treatment for spinal cord injuries.
    Mr. Fraser, 24, now can lift himself from his wheelchair into bed without assistance. He breathes more freely and deeply and has greater core strength with better dexterity. Previously he could manage only a half-mile on his arm-powered elliptical but now does two to three miles, he said.
    His condition so vastly improved that the Robert Morris University graduate who previously couldn’t work plans to move to Atlanta with his brother, Cori Fraser, and become an insurance actuary. “Honestly, whenever I signed up for the [UPMC clinical] trial, I kept myself in check and did not expect something crazy,” he said. “But this definitely has exceeded my expectations.”

    Stem cell therapy enables spinal regrowth
    /

    Stem cells look increasingly promising for regenerative medicine.
    Stem cells form the basis of regenerative medicine. Regeneration is when body tissue grows back after damage. Skin, for example, replaces itself, and the liver can regrow in a human adult.
    The Center for Regenerative Medicine describe stem cells as cells that continuously divide and produce exact copies of themselves; they can also change into specialized cells. This is called differentiation.
    Euro Stem Cell explain that omnipotent stem cells produce all the tissues that a body needs, but not all stem cells are omnipotent; there are different types of stem cells with different strategies for regeneration.
    Scientists have been looking for ways to direct stem cells to replace functional cells damaged through trauma or by other causes, and the search is on to find the right kind of stem cell

    (Boston)--A newly discovered pathway leading to the regeneration of central nervous system (CNS) brain cells (neurons) in a type of roundworm (C. elegans) sheds light on the adult human nervous system's ability to regenerate.
    The findings, which appear online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, soon may lead to treatments that enhance nerve cell regeneration in humans with spinal cord injury and paralysis.

    Hope for spinal patients
    By Ben Hill
    5:00 AM Sunday Apr 10, 2016


    A million-dollar medical marvel is giving people with severe spinal cord injuries a better chance at walking again.
    Middlemore Hospital has been designated a National Spinal Cord Impairment Centre, and has bought a new O-Arm and Navigation machine.
    The O-Arm provides images of the spine that were previously difficult to see. It takes X-rays at multiple points along a 360-degree arc, which are then sent to a computer to create a three-dimensional image of the spine.

    StemCells, Inc. Presents Interim Results from its Phase II Pathway Study in Chronic Cervical Spinal Cord Injury at ASIA Annual Meeting
    GlobeNewswire
    2016-04-18
    Final Results for the First Six Patients to be Released Later this Quarter

    NEWARK, Calif., April 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StemCells, Inc. (NASDAQ:STEM), a world leader in the research and development of cell-based therapeutics for the treatment of central nervous system disorders, announced today that Dr. Stephen Huhn, the Company’s Chief Medical Officer and VP of Clinical Research, presented additional details on its ongoing Phase II Pathway™ Study of HuCNS-SC cells for the treatment of chronic cervical spinal cord injuries. The presentation, which took place at the 2016 American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) annual meeting in Philadelphia on Friday, April 15, included a top line update for the six patients enrolled in open label Cohort I from the Pathway Study. The 6-month results from Cohort I showed that muscle strength had improved in five of the six patients with four of these five patients also demonstrating improved performance on functional tasks assessing dexterity and fine motor skills. In addition, four of the six patients had improvement in the level of cord injury as measured by ISNCSCI (International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury) assessment. The Company expects to release detailed final 12-month results on this first open-label cohort later this quarter.

    new player revealed in nerve growth process
    Role of adaptor protein CD2AP in neuron sprouting discovered by UofL researchers could lead to therapies for Alzheimer’s disease, stroke recovery and spinal cord injury

    Benjamin Harrison, Ph.D., Jeffrey Petruska, Ph.D. and Kristofer Rau, Ph.D.
    University of Louisville researchers have discovered that a protein previously known for its role in kidney function also plays a significant role in the nervous system. In an article featured in the April 13 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience, they show that the adaptor protein CD2AP is a key player in a type of neural growth known as collateral sprouting.
    In the first research to be published on this protein’s role in the nervous system, Benjamin Harrison, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology and lead author of the article, and his colleagues show that CD2AP, an adaptor protein, orchestrates a complex arrangement of other proteins that controls the branching of nerve axons, the tendrils reaching out from the nerve cell to connect to other nerve cells, skin and organs. This nerve growth occurs in uninjured nerve cells as they extend their reach and create new connections.

    New Literature Review Assesses Benefits of Stem Cells for Treating Spinal Cord Injuries
    A realistic hope for spinal cord injury patients
    09:54 ET from American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons


    ROSEMONT, Ill., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Stem cell therapy is a rapidly evolving and promising treatment for spinal-cord injuries. According to a new literature review, published in the April issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (JAAOS), different types of stem cells vary in their ability to help restore function, and an ideal treatment protocol remains unclear pending further clinical research.
