Question for Wise
I recently reconnected with a friend who at age 26 had an anoxic event during an operation to have a pacemaker installed. He is (in his words) a partial quadrapalgic, can feel everything but can't control his body. Hands are contracted, drool, etc. Atypical of anoxic events aside from some short term memory problems his mental capacity is unchanged.
Is there hope for him in any way with current stem cell research? I understand how a person like myself, who if you managed to hook my spinal cord back up I would be "cured" but from my understanding of what happened to him, parts of his brain died due to lack of oxygen and I don't see how stem cells would help that.
Thanks in advance.
