    Gene therapy improves limb function following spinal cord injury

    In the current study, a group of researchers led by Elizabeth Bradbury, PhD, of King's College London used a single injection to deliver the ChABC gene therapy into the spinal cord of injured adult rats. The treatment not only led the spinal cord cells to produce and secrete ChABC in large quantities over areas spanning the injury epicenter, it helped to maintain the overall health of the damaged spinal cord and restored hind limb function in the animals within 12 weeks.

    This one was published in the same journal:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24478364

    Feels impossible to asses them without the full paper.
    Debating on CareCure is like participating in the special-olympics. You may win, but you're still disabled.
