Rust et al: New Therapy Promotes Vascular Repair Following Stroke

Schematische Darstellung einer potenziellen Nogo-A-Antikörper-Therapie.

This also promotes the regaining of motor functions, researchers at the University of Zurich have shown in a mouse model. The study opens up new avenues for treatment.
