A recent discovery in the medical application of AI has the potential to change how we treat spinal cord injuries.
A team of researchers led by Rutgers University have found a way to use AI and robotics to formulate therapeutic proteins which, after setting off a domino reaction, help to degrade scar tissue formed after a spinal cord injury, or SCI. As we touched on last month, scar tissue resulting from SCI can act as roadblocks preventing the successful regeneration of nervous tissue. While the scar tissue serves a purpose in that it protects the trauma site, it reduces the injured person’s control over some or all of their body. This offers a bit of promise for SCI patients who would otherwise be fully mobile if it weren’t for the presence of heavy scar tissue.
