Abstract

The regenerative capacity of an injured spinal cord is limited, and once paralysis occurs, it is difficult to improve the situation. We have developed a treatment method called the HINT method (HDAC Inhibitor and Neural stem cell Transplantation) that improves hind limb motor functionality in mice with severe spinal cord injuries by using a combination of antiepileptic drugs and neural stem cells. This chapter will introduce you to the new neural damage reconstruction mechanism employed in the HINT method.
