Two 19-year old patients - Prabhdeep Singh, a musician from Punjab who lost the power to move after a motor accident, and Srinivas, an aspiring accountant from Chennai who suffered from Transverse Myelitis (a devastating inflammation of the spinal cord that can cause irreversible paralysis), have also found hope.

Srinivas has regained bladder control and is able to feel sensations in the lower part of his abdomen.

He suffered multiple fractures to his lumbar spine and was rendered completely immobile.
Today, after stem cell therapy, Reddy is able to stand and move using a walker, and has regained bladder control and sensation in the lower body.
The stem cell therapy isn't the last horizon for paraplegics alone.
LISTR, which has tied up with Japan's Nichi Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM), has found that stem cell cure can possibly be a viable alternative for liver transplants and cardiac bypass surgeries.
