Introduction Nervous System Injury

While injuries to the peripheral nervous system (PNS) are often capable of spontaneously healing after traumatic injury, damaged central nervous system (CNS) tissue does not regenerate in the same manner. In spite of decades of progress toward restoring motor and sensory function to those with CNS injury, a complete solution remains elusive to date. The current treatment of CNS injury, particularly injury to the spinal cord, relies on minimizing secondary injury and implementing physical therapy designed to help a patient function with limited mobility. Treatment to restore healthy tissue and regain sensory and motor function is still not a reality. Developments in CNS tissue regeneration aim to ultimately provide a method for repairing functional tissue and restoring sensory and motor function.

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
