Paralysed Man Walks Again After Cell Transplant



A paralysed man has been able to walk again after surgeons transplanted cells from his nasal cavity into his spinal cord in a pioneering therapy, giving hope to cripples all over the world of using their feet once again. The BBC reports.


Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.
