Modulation of CSPG Receptor Promotes Locomotor and Urinary Recovery – Dr. Jerry Silver

Dr. Silver presents findings from his lab’s discovery that peptide modulation of the CSPG receptor PTP allowed for remarkable recovery of hindlimb function, locomotor activity, and bladder control in 17 of 20 animals. (Courtesy presentation and video provided by Unite … Continue reading

Peptide inhibitors of LAR family phosphatases release CSPG mediated entrapment of axons and promote robust behavioral recovery following contusive spinal cord injury.

This cutting edge progressive scientific research project being undertaken by Dr. Jerry Silver at Case Western Reserve University and his collaborative team are now moving into chronic spinal cord injury models. This is a project being supported by UNITE 2 … Continue reading
