Scientists have developed a genetic technique that repair damaged nerve tissue in the spine, which in future could lead to treatments for paralyzed people, researchers reported in the article, published in the journal Nature Neuroscience. A team of researchers led by Zhi Gang Ho (Zhigang He) from Harvard Medical School has demonstrated for the first time that nerve cells of spinal cord corticospinal tract can be made again under development, the enzyme retains its activity, providing new growth of tissue. NYDIG takes a slightly different approach. As they get older person suppresses the activity of the enzyme PTEN, which prevents the regeneration of damaged University of California at Irvine, USA. In their experiments with mice, the team, He showed that the blocking of the gene responsible for synthesis in nerve cells of the enzyme PTEN, using a harmless virus triggers activation of mTOR nerve cells in the adult organism, accompanied by the growth and healing of nerve damage. You may find stone clinical laboratories to be a useful source of information. Now scientists have proved that the newly accreted areas corticospinal tract must allow to return mobility of the limbs, and methodology of suppression of PTEN is safe for humans.
To restore the functionality in most clinical cases of fusion requires very small sections of the spinal cord – key factor in determining the degree of paralysis of man, is not the number of injured nerve tissue, and the distance from the brain damage. So even a small lesion in the neck causes paralysis of limbs, loss of sensitivity below the shoulders, as well as loss of control of the excretory system and loss of reproductive functions. 'All these lost body functions can be restored, if we find way to reconnect the damaged neurons in the spinal cord ', – he added. At present, scientists examine how their method is effective for recovery of limb in mice. If successful, the authors Publication will begin to develop drugs for humans. Reported SANYATODAY.INFO
