Supposedly, once the cord injury scars up, the scar tissue itself thwarts the healing process and dampens/eliminates attempts to heal. I've lost the link but I think it was you who posted an article on a potential way to "melt" the scar and re-enable the healing process.

What I'd like to see is a coordinated effort to put all the (potential) advancements together in one study
as opposed to just squirting neural stems cells in the area of the injury.


Funny as I posted this I was thinking the same thing. There seem to be new trials popping up everyday so hopefully someone can come up with "the mother of all stem cell trials"!
