Advances in Research and Treatment for Spinal Cord Injuries



A spinal cord injury debilitates the victim physically and drains him financially. These are strong reasons for research in the field of treatments for spinal cord injuries. The loss of strength and movement that accompanies a spinal cord injury is often permanent.

Here are some of the latest medical breakthroughs associated with spinal cord injury treatment.

Research in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on brain patterns in human babies has reported encouraging results in an effort to discover basic neural networks that will hopefully assist in helping the injured regain mobility.

In an experiment carried out this year at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, injecting stem cells into damaged areas of a patient has yielded positive results. Demonstrable signs of improvement include regaining the sensation and movement in affected areas.

In 215, research carried out at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis showed how neural networks damaged from injury can be healed by connecting the damaged nerves with healthy ones. Physical therapy is required after surgery to help the brain recognize the new pathways created by the rearranged nerves.

Epothilone B, a drug, is being studied at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases, has been used to regenerate cells in rats with injuries to the spinal cord.

While a lot of work still remains to be done, the successes achieved in research portend to a breakthrough in the treatment of spinal cord injuries, and that is good news for patients who are waiting for procedures that can help them regain their quality of life.

Advances in research offer hope to those suffering from SCI.
