In the case of injuries of bone marrow shall be possible to intervene with the micro-artificial prostheses can excite the regeneration of the nerves and bone marrow. And ‘this is the aim of a current learn dall’IRCCS House for the Relief of Suffering and the Hospital Niguarda Ca’ Granda, headed by Dr. Angelo Vescovi and Fabrizio Gelain and shall soon be published in “ACS Nano”. Scientific research continues to amaze positively, not by chance 2010 was a year punctuated by main discoveries.
In the field of prosthesis there have been numerous steps forward, just believe of the electronic implants lately implanted in the leg of an 11 year ancient boy capable to gain independently.
Experts from the House for the Relief of Suffering and the Hospital Niguarda Ca ‘Granda, described that the micro-implants have a tubular shape and are composed of a cylindrical casing containing artificial biological materials which act as sustain, and nano-structured bio-absorbable . Once entered into the injured spinal, Micro-implants are to excite the regeneration of nerves and spinal cord tissue after injury struck and thus should remove (at minimum in part) the paralysis and the negative effects linked with it.
The team of researchers has tried the micro-implant on experimental animals spinal cord injury, discovering how the implants were not merely capable to generate bone marrow and nerve bundles, but also be simply absorbed into the tissues vanish. The mice, in fact, appeared a marked enhancement with a recovery of mobility and the sensitivity of paralyzed limbs.
The research, at present, is yet in progress, but it bodes well, because it is a new area of Search hitherto uncared for.
