    Abstract : Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of motor neurons and their supporting cells in the brain, brainstem and spinal cord, resulting in muscle paresis and paralysis including the bulbar (speech, chewing, swallowing) and respiratory muscles. The average age at onset is 55 years, and death due to respiratory failure occurs 2-5 years after symptom onset in ~ 85% of cases. READ MORE

  2. 2. A regeneration strategy for spinal cord injury

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Jonathan Nordblom; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]

    Abstract : A severe traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) frequently leads to a devastating and permanent disability. Due to glial scarring and an inhibitory local environment, regrowth of disrupted axons in the injured spinal cord beyond a lesion is obstructed, thus preventing reconnection with neurons at the other side.
