For readers who are watching NervGen Pharma, here's an update on upcoming trials for people with spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis. If you're new to NervGen, they're working on a peptide (NVG-291) that will allow nerve regeneration in spite of scar tissue. You can read more about NervGen and NVG-291 here.
I've talked about scar tissue and various treatments of it several times before: using an EpiPen for SCIs, eating blue M&Ms (yes, M&Ms), injecting nanoparticles, and inserting an internal scaffolding. All of these different methods tackle the situation of scar tissue which blocks regeneration. The blue M&M seems like it would be most popular, and I'm keeping an eye on it . . . but it's not that simple! Caveat lector.
