Scientists Develop Method To Re-attach Nerves In Only Minutes

New procedure repairs severed nerves in minutes, restoring limb use in days or weeks, rather than months or years. The team studied the mechanisms all animal cells use to repair damage to their membranes and focused on invertebrates, which have a superior ability to regenerate nerve axons compared to mammals. The procedure was fully successful in rats and now Doctors and other scientist- collaborators at Harvard Medical School along with Vanderbilt Medical School are conducting studies to obtain approval to begin clinical trials.
