...al stabilization at the acute phase, when rods and ties are placed in the spinal column to restabilize it after injury. Currently, drug treatments are given during the acute phase to help stabilize the injury site, but they provide only a very mild benefit, and they do not foster regeneration of insulatio...

Discovery of T-cell 'traffic control' boosts new drug promise

... trials of the new drugs and neither has financial ties to the companies that manufacture them. Controlling this process with drugs offers "enormous potential" against devastating immune reactions, Goetzl says.
