Hi !
I'd like to know if anybody has any news about research about spinal cord 
regeneration that is going on in England-London, Switzerland-Zurich, 
Japan-Kyoto and Israel.

Last status I know is:


* Switzerland - Zurich:
  
  Research: They used these two substances in spinal cord and it was 
            regenerated.
  Responsible: Lisa Schnell
  Organization: University of Zurich
  
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Substance      In Portuguese          In English (I think so !)
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------     
     NT-3        Neuro Tropina 3        Neuro Trophine 3
     IN-1        ???                    Related with the immunologic system
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This research was published on the british Journal called NATURE.

* England - London ?? (may be !)

  Research: Spinal cord transplantation "fix" the injury.
  Responsible: David Herman
  Organization: International Trust of Spinal Research (?)

  This research is going to be (or it was !) published on the Journal of 
  Neuroscience.

 Thank you,
