London: Japanese scientists claimed to have found a novel method of stem cell treatment that can cure paralysed patients. The research team at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Japan, found that stem cells taken from brain could be used to restore movement in people with spinal cord injuries.
"Although various treatment regimens can partially alleviate spinal cord injury, the mechanisms responsible for symptomatic improvement remain elusive. "These findings raise the possibility that (stem cells)... can be manipulated to provide effective treatment for spinal cord injuries," he added. The study appears in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. IANS
