Purdue Technology For Spinal Cord Injuries Advances

Massachusetts-based Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, Inc., which has licensed technology from Andara Life Science, Inc. at the Purdue Research Park, has received a patent to take a treatment for spinal cord injuries to the next level.

The patent allows Cyberkinetics and Andara to begin clinical trials on a combination treatment that is aimed at helping patients who suffer from long-term spinal cord injuries. Current Andara technology is being used only on patients who have suffered a very recent spinal cord injury.
