    If this is new news then sci research seems evolving backwards... we went from full recovery in rats to just hand function now... resetting the hype to zero all over again for the newbies to get excited it seems.

    If you take just the result then I would agree, sensationalism is what gets headlines and that seems to be the way to get attention (e.g Harkema or Courtine).

    But there is more to most of these things, this is possibly the best path forward for Chondroitinase.
    There is a plan to go from rats to the clinic, but there are hurdles to overcome.
