"This research opens the door to developing a clinical protocol for curing human spinal cord injuries using conventional therapies," said lead researcher Nurit Kalderon, Ph.D. Conducted at Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research in New York City, the research was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
The hallmark of spinal cord injury is progressive tissue decay at the damage size.Kalderon's previous research indicated that the spinal cord is able to repair itself in the early days after injury but is thwarted in its efforts during the second or third week by certain cells that block the repair process.
In earlier research on rats with cords that were completely severed, Kalderon was able to show that radiation therapy, similar to that used in cancer treatment, given localized at the lesion site during the third week following injury helped the spinal cord heal itself by eliminating the cells that interfere with its natural repair processes.
...
Kalderon and her colleagues at Sloan-Kettering then made longitudinal micro-incisions down the centre of the injured cord within the first 24 hours after injury to release the fluid build-up.
...
"This research provides hope for spinal cord injury victims that paralysis can indeed be prevented or repaired with a combination of conventional therapies at the time of injury," said Kalderon.
