JNCASR’s molecule improves recovery after spinal cord injury

JNCASR researchers used a small molecule conjugated to carbon nanospheres to activate an enzyme (Cbp) that promotes axon regeneration and recovery after spinal cord injury. Regeneration and growth of axons led to recovery of sensory and motor functions in the animals with spinal cord injury. Mice could walk normally on the floor without limping and … Continue reading JNCASR’s molecule improves recovery after spinal cord injury

IIT Guwahati team succeeds in regenerating damaged nerve

Rats with regenerated sciatic nerve exhibited significantly better walking pattern. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati have taken the first successful step in treating peripheral nerve damage which can result from traumatic injuries caused by accidents, physical conflict, bullet wounds as well as during surgical intervention. The nerve conduits synthesised by the … Continue reading IIT Guwahati team succeeds in regenerating damaged nerve
