    hope the link works - this involves a drug that has allowed rats to regain spinal cord growth after severing. Could be very big.

    Interesting stuff metatron,

    Let's hope it works on humans.

    unc who was side tracked by the article on the daddy of all flesh eating dinosaurs -

    After measuring their sizes, he estimates that the 99-centimetre-long snout came from a skull 1.75 metres long. From what we know of the body shapes of other spinosaurs, Dal Sasso calculates that the new Spinosaurus was 17 metres long and weighed 7 to 9 tonnes (Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, vol 14, p 888).

    thank Jehovah for the flood!

    This article makes no biological sense to me. When an antibody binds, it attaches itself so that a white cell recognized the complex as an intruder, in other words: an antibody targets cells for destruction. Assuming the targeted cells are not destroyed, their cell surface are -at least- blocked from any interaction and likely any growth.

    I'd have guessed that growth factors or any other cell regulator would promote neuron regeneration, not an antibody. G o figure...

    I got it now: Nogo-A exerts a growth inhibitory function leading to restricted axonal (neuron) regeneration. Anti-Nogo-A antibodies seem to stop Nogo's growth inhibition, allowing the axons (neuron) to grow and re-establish synapsis or connections.
