Injected Nose Cells Repair Damaged Dog Spinal Cords
Dogs paralyzed in their hind quarters regained the ability to move their back legs with nose cells. Go dogs go.
Scientists have reversed paralysis in dogs after injecting them with cells grown from the lining of their nose.
Click thru to watch Jasper the dachshund regain the ability to move his hind legs. Not perfect. But a big improvement.

We are going to become repairable. The sooner the better.
