A study at Cambridge ,using real subjects,not teat animals ,has shown great promise for paralyzed animals.
Cells at the back of the nasal cavity regenerate nerve fibers. The cells are cultivated ,and then injected into the spinal column .
Subjects have shown remarkable improvement . Some even regain bladder control .They are cautiously optimistic about human studies in the future .
So far,its only being tried in subjects who are paralyzed from the waist down .
