    Thumbs up Non-invasive technique to transplant cells into the nervous system

    A research team led by Dr Testuji Sekiya at Kyoto University's Graduate School of Medicine has discovered a new, non-invasive technique to transplant cells into the nervous system. They show that the glial scar, commonly thought to be an obstacle to regeneration, can provide critical cues to the integration of donor cells.

    It'll be awhile. It hasn't even been run through SCI animal testing yet. It's proof in principal accomplished in the auditory nerve at this point. We also need a human clinical grade Ch'ase made available. It's a very exciting concept however when you read the publication and see how the discovery came by accident.
