People in Wheelchairs May Walk Again

The actor Christopher Reeve, who became paralyzed due to a riding accident, always insisted that he would walk again. He didn't live long enough to see an amazing new breakthrough that might have made this possible.

A vaccine that stimulates the production of immune cells called T-helper cells, could enable people with serious spinal injuries to walk again. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have combined these cells with stem cells to repair broken spines in paralyzed mice. However, other researchers are skeptical about their results.

T-helpers are cells that specifically protect myelin, which is the protein that coats the nerve cells. The vaccine encouraged and protected stem-cells in the spine as they grew and became nerve cells. Crippled animals treated in this way were able to walk again.

People have reported being healed by the grays, but meeting with them is not always a straightforward experience.
