Episode 48, Special Edition – Breakthrough Discovery In Stroke Recovery, A Rebroadcast of WBUR Interview
This episode is rebroadcast of a WBUR interview released on Nov 30, 2017.
A Stanford neurosurgery team led by Dr Gary Steinberg has made a groundbreaking discovery: after stroke, the brain circuits went dormant instead of dead. Injecting adult stem cells into the brain can resurrect these circuits.
In this interview with WBUR, Dr Steinberg discusses the discovery and their first clinic trial. The team is now running the second clinic trial which will end in 18 months.
The result offers lots of hope to stroke, TBI, spinal cord injuries and other injuries.
