Spinal cord treatment offers hope

Oz Research of Note (in progress)

Brisbane researchers have developed a promising new treatment for spinal cord injury in animals, which could eventually prevent paralysis in thousands of people worldwide every year. The treatment, which combined vascular endothelial and platelet-derived proteins, was applied to animals immediately after spinal cord injury, and evaluated after one and three month periods.
