    NEWS RELEASE 15-MAR-2021
    UofL, Medtronic to develop epidural stimulation algorithms for spinal cord injury
    $7.8 million from NIH will fund development of a closed-loop system to monitor and adjust for multiple functions, use wireless monitoring

    UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Researchers at the University of Louisville made news worldwide in 2018 when two people diagnosed with complete spinal cord injuries recovered the ability to walk thanks to experimental use of a therapy known as epidural stimulation. The news gave hope to people living with complete spinal cord injuries, a diagnosis that historically meant they were unlikely to regain function below their level of injury.

      One step closer to treating spinal cord injury with our own stem cells
      March 15th 2021
      Justin Varholick, PhD

      Recently, a team of scientists from Yale University and Sapparo Medical University in Japan treated spinal cord injury patients with their own bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), increasing their ability to walk and use their hands. Previous to the treatment, 13 patients had sustained falls or minor spinal trauma resulting in loss of motor function, coordination, sensory loss, as well as bowel and bladder dysfunction. After being bedridden for several weeks from an unexpected fall, the first patient was extremely thankful to be able to independently use a wheelchair and walk upright with a walker. Thanks to their own stem cells.

        Nanobiomaterial boosts neuronal growth in mice with spinal cord injuries
        by Tongji Hospital of Tongji University

        Researchers from the Department of Orthopedics of Tongji Hospital at Tongji University in Shanghai have successfully used a nanobiomaterial called layered double hydroxide (LDH) to inhibit the inflammatory environment surrounding spinal cord injuries in mice, accelerating regeneration of neurons and reconstruction of the neural circuit in the spine. The researchers were also able to identify the underlying genetic mechanism by which LDH works. This understanding should allow further modification of the therapy which, in combination with other elements, could finally produce a comprehensive, clinically applicable system for spinal cord injury relief in humans.
