Walking Again

A new study has shown incredible promise by combining three new spinal cord injury treatments in one triple treatment. Taking cells from the rats' own bodies, researchers were able to create a huge improvement, allowing 70% average mobility for all the experimental rats. It's very good to see an improvement in patient prognosis free from all the political controversy that seems to accompany so much biotechnological progress these days. Hopefully, they'll be able to translate these rodent results into human studies very soon.
