Fixing Spinal Cords in Mice — Are Humans Next?

Share this blog:

There are millions of paralyzed people. For now, at least. I recently shared the story of Michael Roccati, a paraplegic who’s been able to walk with the assistance of sensors and exoskeleton technology. Today, I’ve got something as — if not  more — exciting.

Scientists at Tel Aviv University are developing tissue-engineering approaches, including spinal implants, that are allowing paralyzed mice to walk again. As Dr. Tal Dvir, the study’s corresponding author explains, “What we’re doing is developing approaches to allow them to walk again.” Human trials could begin within a year or two.

Now that’s exciting!
