Transplant enables paralyzed dog to walk again
A partially paralyzed little dog is able to walk again thanks to a unique treatment that may one day also help humans.
A spinal injury prevented Jasper, a 10-year-old dachshund, from using his back legs. Scientists injected him with cells taken from his own nose. Cambridge University researchers say the injected cells helped regenerate the damaged done to his spine and Jasper is now showing off his walking skills. Researchers hope the treatment will help people with similar injuries in the future.
