• Cleveland Spinal Injury Attorney: Promising New Research in Stem Cell Therapy

    Posted on November 4th, 2019 admin No comments

    Here’s some good news to come across the desk recently of one of our spinal injury attorneys in Cleveland: UC San Diego researchers recently published a study showing that a mix of 3D printing and stem cell therapy can be used to treat severe spinal cord injuries.

    Scientists say the findings are a huge breakthrough for people with paralysis.

    The researchers built a 3D model from scratch to make a model of a spinal cord section based on MRI imaging. The model was then loaded with stem cells that were implanted into the test subject.

    In tested rodents, the 3D spinal cord and stem cells spurred new neuron growth and helped restore function.

    “When there’s an injury, the local population of cells, the neurons, die,” Dr. Kobi Koffler with the school of Neuroscience told ABC News. “With these stem cells, we’re bringing them back.”

    Bioprinting was able to take the research to unprecedented levels.

     

    New Methods Mean Brighter Scientific Possibilities

    “Every patient’s damaged organ or tissue is different. You cannot use traditional manufacturing methods to do this,” Dr. Shaochen Chen with the School of Engineering told ABC News. “3D Bioprinting is perfect to do that.”

    And that means a brighter future for the clients of a spinal injury attorney in Cleveland. Science is bringing a new day, one in which full recovery from spinal injury becomes a more achievable reality.
