Scientists May Have Found Protein That Could Help Unlock Spinal Regeneration in Humans

A discovery regarding the regenerative properties of zebrafish may be the key to unlocking the ability of spinal cord regeneration in the hundreds of thousands of…

Cell-based therapies offer new OA hope

Multiple cell-based therapies for osteoarthritis — the most common but least effectively treated type of non-inflammatory arthritis in the world — are making slow but steady progress from lab to clini
