Stem cells: Targeting pain of spinal-cord injury

Neurons derived from human embryonic stem cells can reduce pain and other effects of spinal-cord injury in mice.Persistent nerve pain and loss of bladder control often follow spinal-cord injury, and may be linked to reduced signalling by the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. Thomas Fandel and
