German Scientist Successes Producing Artificial Nerve Fibres To Cure Paralysis

In an attempt to cure spinal-cord-induced-paralysis, German scientists from Bocham's Ruh University have claimed success in producing new nerve fibres for muscle-brain connection. As per the scientists, they stimulated nerve cells via designer protein "hyper-interleukin-6". Reportedly, the paralyzed-mice injected with the protein were able to walk after two-three weeks as new cells generated to carry information from brain to spine. However, the researchers believe this experiment on human is a long shot.
