Stem Cell Mix Helps Paralyzed Rats Walk

A complex combination of treatments, including stem cells and growth factors, can heal damaged neural circuits, allowing partially paralyzed rats to walk. These findings represent a significant step forward in regenerative medicine, providing new treatment possibilities for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and grow new neural fibers out of the spinal cord “renders transplantation approaches to repair realistic."

Previous research has shown that cell transplants and other treatments can help paralyzed rodents walk. But those experiments have focused mainly on repairing local damage within the spinal cord. They could help patients whose motor neurons -- cells carrying messages from brain to spinal cord -- remain intact after injury or disease.
