Created Line of Spinal Cord Neural Stem Cells Shows Diverse Promise

August 6, 2018

…School of Medicine report that they have successfully created spinal cord neural stem cells (NSCs) from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) that differentiate into a diverse population of cells capable of dispersing throughout the spinal cord and can be maintained for long periods of time.

Clinical Trial Evaluates Safety of Stem Cell Transplantation in Spine

August 11, 2014

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have launched a clinical trial to investigate the safety of neural stem cell transplantation in patients with chronic spinal cord injuries. This Phase I clinical trial is recruiting eight patients for the 5-year study.

Spinal Cord Axon Injury Location Determines Neuron’s Regenerative Fate

April 30, 2015

…which the location of injury to a neuron’s communication wire in the spinal cord — the axon — determines whether the neuron simply stabilizes or attempts to regenerate. The study, published April 30 by Neuron, demonstrates how advances in live-imaging techniques are revealing new insights into the body’s ability to…

3D Printed Implants Show Promise for Treating Spinal Cord Injury

January 17, 2019

…to fit a patient's spinal cord injury 3D Printed Implants Show Promise for Treating Spinal Cord Injury 3D printed implants could one day help restore neural connections and lost motor function in patients with spinal cord injury. The implants, developed by engineers and neuroscientists at the University of California San…

Biologists Discover New Strategy to Treat Central Nervous System Injury

April 11, 2016

Neurobiologists at UC San Diego have discovered how signals that orchestrate the construction of the nervous system also influence recovery after traumatic injury. They also found that manipulating these signals can enhance the return of function.

Neural Stem Cells Regenerate Axons in Severe Spinal Cord Injury

September 13, 2012

…degree” of axonal growth at the site of severe spinal cord injury in rats. Their research revealed that early stage neurons have the ability to survive and extend axons to form new, functional neuronal relays across an injury site in the adult central nervous system 〈CNS〉.

New Biomarker Predicts Whether Neurons Will Regenerate

October 16, 2023

Researchers from University of California San Diego have identified a new biomarker that can predict whether or not neurons will regenerate after an injury. The findings could help scientists develop regenerative therapies for spinal cord injuries and other neurological conditions.

New Injection Technique May Boost Spinal Cord Injury Repair Efforts

January 29, 2020

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues, describe a new method for delivering neural precursor cells to spinal cord injuries in rats, reducing the risk of further injury and boosting the propagation of potentially reparative cells.

Stem Cell-Based Phase I Trial to Repair Spinal Cord Injuries Produces Encouraging Results

June 1, 2018

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that a first-in-human phase I clinical trial in which neural stem cells were transplanted into participants with chronic spinal cord injuries produced measurable improvement in three of four subjects, with no serious adverse effects.

UC San Diego Biologists Discover Genes That Repair Nerves After Injury

September 21, 2011

…genes that play a role in regenerating nerves after injury, providing biomedical researchers with a valuable set of genetic leads for use in developing therapies to repair spinal cord injuries and other common kinds of nerve damage such as stroke.
