Cancer drugs could help with spinal cord injuries
Added: Monday 1 June 2015
Researchers have found that mice treated with cancer drugs known as nutlins could help to treat spinal cord injuries by making nerves regrow. Normally the damage from spinal cord injuries is permanent because proteins restrict nerve growth. Nutlins, normally used to suppress tumours, suppress these proteins and allow nerve regrowth to occur.
