Epigenetic Treatment Can Help the Spinal Cord Regenerate After Injury – SciTechDaily

Axon growth, regenerative signaling, and synaptic plasticity were all increased by gene activation.

Currently, there are no effective therapies for spinal cord damage; physical therapy may help patients recover some movement, but the results are severely limited in severe cases due to the inability of spinal neurons to regenerate naturally after injury.

However, in a study that was recently published in PLOS Biology, scientists led by Simone Di Giovanni at Imperial College London in the UK demonstrate that when given to mice 12 weeks after a serious injury, weekly treatments with an epigenetic activator can encourage the regrowth of sensory and motor neurons in the spinal cord.
