Nerve Grafting for Spinal Cord Injury in Cats: Are We Close to Translational Research
Nerve Grafting for Spinal Cord Injury in Cats: Are We Close to Translational Research?

As you can see... There is little to no information given, but the title is really irking my patience. I hope they publish it soon, I am giving a presentation on SCI's in class and I was hoping I could discuss other treatments.
From the little summary I got from Columbia University's site, it seems like a very treacherous treatment, however perhaps it could work. What are your thoughts on nerve grafting?

Here is a link to a related article (2010).

Basically they performed a nerve graft from C7 to T1 using ChABC to suppress CSPG. There was evidence of axon growth into and out of the graft into the spinal cord but...
