Investigators publish new data in the report 'Therapeutic DNAvaccination as a repair strategy following spinal cord injury.' "Myelin-derived proteins, such as tenascin-R (TN-R), myelin associate glycoprotein (MAG), oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein (OMgp), and Nogo-A, inhibit the central nervous systemregeneration. In this study, the DNA vaccine encoding for oligodendrocyte and myelin-related antigens was employed to attenuate the axonal growth inhibitory properties of myelin in the setting of spinal cord injury," scientists writing in the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology report.
"Using a rat spinal cord dorsal hemisection model, the vaccine...
