    Thoughts on Chondroitinase ABC?

    Wondered if taking this by capsule would be helpful for regenerating any form of spinal cord injury, especially chronic and incomplete.

    Hi Jan,

    These aren't capsules that can be ordered off the internet and taken for SCI. Currently the state of Chondroitinase ABC is a research reagent utilized only in laboratories. It's being tested by injection in large animals (a canine study in Ames Iowa) for spinal cord injury. We do hope there are positive results in that trial and the ongoing efforts of Spinal Research in the U.K. to bring it to clinical trial in humans both direct delivery and lenti-virus delivery.
