    Rats paralyzed due to loss of blood flow to the spine returned to near normal ambulatory function six weeks after receiving grafts of human spinal stem cells (hSSCs), researchers from the UCSD School of Medicine report. The study, led by Martin Marsala, M.D., UC San Diego professor of anesthesiology, is published in the June 29, 2007 issue of the journal Neuroscience, which is now online.


    Newswise — Rats paralyzed due to loss of blood flow to the spine returned to near normal ambulatory function six weeks after receiving grafts of human spinal stem cells (hSSCs), researchers from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine report. The study, led by Martin Marsala, M.D., UC San Diego professor of anesthesiology, is published in the June 29, 2007 issue of the journal Neuroscience, which is now online.

    “We demonstrated that when damage has occurred due to a loss of blood flow to the spine’s neural cells, by grafting human neural stem cells directly into the spinal cord we can achieve a progressive recovery of motor function,” said Marsala. “This could some day prove to be an effective treatment for patients suffering from the same kind of ischemia-induced paralysis.” Marsala is currently testing the human stem cell therapy for safety and efficacy in other animal models, and hopes to move to clinical trials in humans by next year.

    Hi Luy, I just want everyone here not to miss anything. If I over doing it guys please just let me know and I'll stop. We have a lot of visitors here daily, and maybe we help them with some of the posts. I have a little more time because I work part time, I have booked the medical sites and I do check them daily. Hoping they will write some day soon that the cure is here. I want to do it right, so let me know to cool it.

    Manouli,

    Absolutely don't stop. You're incredible. Your dedication, time invested, and shear number of relevant posts are always welcomed on the forum. Don't let a few discourage you, I feel confident 98% of the members appreciate your continous efforts. I know I do.
