Gene Therapy Successfully Treats Spinal Cord Injuries Without Side Effects

Posted on: 31 May 2022, source: SciTechDaily

An international team of researchers led by scientists at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine reported that a gene therapy that inhibits targeted nerve cell signaling effectively reduced neuropathic pain in mice with spinal cord or peripheral nerve injuries with no detectable side effects.
