Can myelin stimulate neuron growth in spinal cord injuries?

Researchers from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (CA, USA) have discovered that a molecule associated with myelin could stimulate axonal growth in neural precursor cells (NPCs) and induced pluripotent (iPSC)-derived neural stem cells – a finding that could aid research into developing methods for repairing and regrowing neurons in the treatment of spinal cord injuries.

    But yes – having studied myelin sheaths and axons and their apparent interplay in different pathological conditions during many years – you do realize that myelin is needed for the axon to thrive- all time. This is what’s great with neuropath observations – if true observations are made.
    Great to see optimistic writings regarding spinal cord injuries!
