PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS OF CHRONIC SPINAL CORD INJURY RESEARCH IN 2014 and 2015
Written by Corinne JEANMAIRE, on behalf of the EndParalysis foundation and of the ESCIF Research Group, in February 2015.
The purpose of this article is to provide a summary of the important developments and spinal cord research progress towards recovery. In line with the scope and focus of the EndParalysis foundation, we will mainly focus on research applicable to chronic spinal cord injury and therapies that are at clinical or pre-clinical stage and thus have a potential to be applied successfully on human patients. We have noted some interesting progress in 2014 and can see exciting prospects for 2015 and the coming years. The list below is far from exhaustive but is simply meant to give an idea of the momentum currently at play. Is it a cure? No, none of those projects are “the cure” yet, but many of them have the potential of bringing small to significant functional recovery to the patients, either applied in isolation or in combination with other therapies.
Never before was the potential for functional recovery after SCI so high. The question is now how to accelerate the move. The awareness of the need for more spinal cord injury research, the financial means given to it as well as an increased international collaboration are still, and more than ever, key to quicker and bigger progress. In that respect we will also look at the research advocacy environment and highlight some interesting initiatives by some of the larger SCI foundations and come back to the role and the uniqueness of the EndParalysis foundation in that context...
