For the first time in the world, the method of Schwann cell injection to repair spinal cord injuries is declared as a safe treatment by Iranian scholars and finally the clinical results of this research go public after 10 years. For treatment to be successful, the patient with spinal cord injury should not be over 50 years old and with no infection there.
