Injectable peptide might help spinal cord injury patients walk again

The treatment was developed by Dr Jerry Silver, a professor of neurosciences at Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine and advisor for NervGen Pharma.

It’s the culmination of decades of work, and in pre-clinical studies, it has shown robust results in animal models.
