Treatment Holds Promise for Thousands of Patients Impacted by Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most significant forms of neurotrauma with major economic and social impact. Every year, nearly 12,000 individuals in the United States and Canada, mostly young adults, sustain a SCI. Research utilizing a novel protein shows promise for partially restoring neurological function in acute SCI cases treated quickly after the incident.
