Mice Hair Can Treat Spinal Cord Injuries

Mice Hair Can Treat Spinal Cord Injuries

Scientists at the Anticancer Research Centre in San Diego have made a revolutionary invention. According to this discovery, severe spinal cord injuries can be treated with mice hair. The scientists presented their findings at the World Congress for Hair Research in Cairns.

The study has shown that in their research the scientists found new stem cells in the hair follicles of mice. These cells are capable of repairing damaged spinal cords.

When same stem cells found from human hair follicles, were tested on mice, they showed the same results.

The U. S. and Japanese scientists were seeking for probable cancer treatment, and then they found these stem cells. Scientists found the stem cells from Research Lab Anticancer, which is in San Diego.

The researchers have released a video, which shows the before and after effects of this experiment on a paralyzed mouse.

This discovery gives a ray of hope for the people who are unable to walk.

According to Robert Hoffman, Anticancer President when these hair follicle stem cells were applied on a severely damaged nerve of the mouse, the nerve started functioning properly.

Though the discovery is made by chance, it is a significant development in the health sector.
