    Potential for exciting new treatment for spinal cord injury10 March 2020
    New research from the University of Aberdeen has found a new way to repair injured spinal nerves.

    Researchers achieved significant regrowth of injured spinal nerves in rats when they activated a specific molecule found in nerve cells.
    Dr Wenlong Huang, Dr Derryck Shewan and Dr Alba Guijarro-Belmar from the Institute of Medical Sciences found that activation of a molecule called Epac2 resulted in significant improvement in the regrowth of nerves that had been severed following spinal cord injury.
    This is the first time that activation of Epac2 has been found to enhance nerve growth following spinal cord injury.

        • Spinal Cord Injuries: UVA Scientists Probe Individual Cells to Find Better Treatments

           

          April 29, 2020
          Josh Barney, jdb9a@virginia.edu

          Two top scientists at the University of Virginia School of Medicine are seeking answers to questions about spinal cord injuries that have long frustrated the development of effective treatments.

          The scientists, Jonathan Kipnis and Kodi Ravichandran, are teaming up to understand why critical nerve cells called neurons continue to die after spinal cord injuries. So little is known that doctors aren’t even certain if the body’s immune response is beneficial or harmful.

          • Exercise advice for spinal cord injury

            Researchers take the guesswork out of exercising effectively

            University of British Columbia Okanagan campus

            Summary:

            An expert says a major barrier to physical activity for people with a spinal cord injury is a lack of knowledge or resources about the amount and type of activity needed to achieve health and fitness benefits.

              • Scientists probe individual cells to find better spinal cord injuries treatments

                By Disability Insider May 01, 2020

                Two top scientists at the University of Virginia School of Medicine are seeking answers to questions about spinal cord injuries that have long frustrated the development of effective treatments.

                The scientists, Jonathan Kipnis and Kodi Ravichandran, are teaming up to understand why critical nerve cells called neurons continue to die after spinal cord injuries. So little is known that doctors aren’t even certain if the body’s immune response is beneficial or harmful.

                By understanding that process, Kipnis and Ravichandran hope to pave the way for more effective treatments, either by enhancing or limiting the immune response. Their work has received $350,000 in backing from the philanthropic Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

                  Lineage Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE American and TASE: LCTX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing novel cell therapies for unmet medical needs, today provided an update on OPC1, the Company’s oligodendrocyte progenitor cell (OPC) therapy for the treatment of acute spinal cord injury (SCI). The OPC1 program was obtained through Lineage’s acquisition of Asterias Biopharmaceuticals in March 2019, and manufacturing has been completely transferred to the Company’s current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) facility in Israel, where key process improvements have been developed and implemented. Lineage also has strengthened its patent position in order to protect the OPC1 processes, product and composition, and methods of use. Lineage intends to meet with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to discuss further development of the OPC1 program by the end of 2020.

                  • Experts regenerate nerve connections after spinal cord injury


                    Spinal cord injury can seemingly result in paralysis and hamper voluntary movement. Scientists from the UC Irvine, UC San Diego and Harvard University have apparently activated robust regeneration of nerve connections that regulate voluntary movement after spinal cord injury. This discovery can possibly open doors for novel therapeutic approaches to paralysis and other motor function impairments.

                      Seemingly??? Really

                      I would say it is well beyond 'seemingly'. LOL.

                      Thanks for the link though, looking it over now.

                          Mouse study shows spinal cord injury causes bone marrow failure syndrome
                          by Ohio State University Medical Center
                          Research conducted at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and The Ohio State University College of Medicine found that spinal cord injuries in mice cause an acquired bone marrow failure syndrome that may contribute to chronic immune dysfunction.
