The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis over the last several years has initiated several clinical studies and trials targeting both chronic and acute injury. This lecture will summarize recent findings utilizing therapeutic hypothermia, human Schwann cell transplantation and extensive rehabilitation strategies to improve long term function in subjects with severe spinal cord injury. Clinical studies as well as FDA approved trials are demonstrating the safety and efficacy of these experimental treatments.
