The Indian Spinal Injuries Centre has got a go-ahead from the government to carry human trials using bone marrow transplantation in patients suffering from acute spinal cord injury. Stem cells are taken from the patient and harvested outside the body and then infused into the spinal cord. The patient gets his stem cells back. For the first group, researchers will inject the cells harvested from the bone marrow in the fluid around the spine, in the second, they will inject the cells into the spine and third will be the control group.
