    This Biodegradable Device Could Regenerate Spinal Cord Injury
    FROM THE CLINIC
    Alexander Burik Alexander Burik on 22/02/2018

    A new approach to treat complete spinal cord injury combining drugs with a biodegradable device is being tested in Sweden and soon also in Estonia.

    BioArctic, a Swedish company, is currently in Phase I/II trials for a complete spinal cord injury treatment. The product, known as SC0806, uses a biodegradable medical device in tandem with a drug to support nerve regeneration across the injured area of the spinal cord.

    BioArctic?s biodegradable medical device nurtures the growth of central nerves in transplanted grafts of peripheral nerves that protect the new growth from inflammation at the injury. To stimulate nerve regeneration further, the device releases FGF1, a growth factor involved in neural regeneration and healing, as it degrades.

    The human body is not able to naturally regenerate tissue after spinal cord injuries because of an imbalance of chemical signals in the neuroregenerative process. If successful, BioArctic?s Phase I/II trial could prove to be an important step forward in harnessing the body?s regenerative potential to restore damaged tissue in the spinal cord.

    Among treatments that are currently approved and administered by doctors, there is no regenerative therapy ? which restores the body?s healthy tissue ? for complete spinal cord injury that is clinically feasible. Current clinical practices focus on eliminating further damage to the spinal cord in patients with spinal cord injury. Regenerative therapeutic approaches in development include cell-based delivery, biomolecule delivery, and scaffold-based strategies...
