“Functional Regeneration Into and Well Beyond the Glial Scar”

Dr. Silver has spent decades exploring ways to restore function after spinal cord injury. In the past two years, he and his team have achieved promising results with combinatorial strategies using chondroitinase, peptides, various cell bridging techniques, neuronal enhancement and wound preparations of the SCI lesion. He believes that these strategies may very well be useful in restoring both sensory and motor function in paralyzed humans.
