Stem Cell Treatments, Patients with spinal cord injuries are currently the subject of stem cell treatment in Atlanta and Chicago with an essay by Geron Corp., a biotechnology company based in Menlo Park, California, to test the safe use of embryonic stem cells to treat spinal cord injuries, according to a Los Angeles Times.
The researchers studied the potential of embryonic stem cells in treating spinal cord injuries for several years. The research team took stem cells into oligodendrocytes, which could allow signals to travel up and down the spine again. The treatment was tested on rodents and is currently being tested for safety on human patients.
The trial of the man, called Phase I trial will enroll up to 10 patients suffering from spinal cord between the thoracic vertebrae third and tenth, the injection of cells within 14 days of the injury. Testing will be conducted at the Center currently Shepard in Atlanta and at Northwestern University in Chicago.
