Successful spinal cord regeneration

Specialists from the Hirszfeld Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy took part in an experiment in which severed nerve fibers and motor ability was restored for Dariusz Fidyka, a man whose spinal cord had been severed. The team took cells from the olfactory bulb, isolating specifically the olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC) together with fibroblasts. After 14 days in culture, the material was then transplanted by a team of specialists from the Neurosurgery Clinic at Wrocław Medical University. After six months of intensive exercise, the patient regained the ability to walk (using orthopedic parallel bars).
