Even though we may be years away from a robust stem cell treatment coming to the market for spinal cord injury, the lab work continues to progress and show great promise. What we don’t know is; which stem cell will have the most success in bringing about recovery of function. It is prudent to support and follow the progress in the labs that are working to answer that very question. (cp)

The earlier primate work was report HERE in February.
