Headline Patrol: ‘Doctors might have figured out how to cure spinal cord injuries’

  • Two AIS As (that means no motor, no sensory function below lesion) improved two levels to AIS C (that means some motor and some sensory recovery). This is a pretty big deal, a two-step conversion.
  • Three As improved to B (some sensory gain, no motor).
  • One AIS B gained two levels to D (more than half motor and sensory recovery, many Ds can walk).
  • Two Bs became Cs.
  • Five AIS C patients improved to D — and this recovery was observed just one day after stem cell infusion.
