Regenerative Medicine Restores Movement After Paralysis
Twelve-month data from spinal cord injury trial shows two-thirds of subjects recovered two or more motor levels
Four of six people with paralyzing spinal cord injuries who were treated with a new cell therapy have recovered two or more motor levels on at least one side, new study results show.
This 67 percent recovery rate is more than double the rates of recovery seen in both matched historical controls and published data in a similar population. Each of the six participants in the study had lost all motor function below the location of the spinal injury.
They each received a surgical injection of 10 million of the cells being studied.
