Breaking News. Claire Lomas' fundraising efforts result in ground breaking treatment for paralysis.
A new treatment in spinal injury repair has helped a paralysed man walk again. Injured event rider,Claire Lomas, has helped to raise funds for this ground breaking therapy.
Claire Lomas’ fundraising efforts have helped towards a pioneering therapy which has resulted in a paralysed man walking again.
The technique, described as a breakthrough by a study in the journal Cell Transplantation, involved transplanting what are known as olfactory ensheathing cells into the patient’s spinal cord and constructing a “nerve bridge” between two stumps of the damaged spinal column.
Geoffrey Raisman, a professor at University College London’s (UCL) Institute of Neurology led the research working in conjunction with surgeons at Wroclaw University Hospital in Poland
The groundbreaking research was supported by the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation (NSIF) and the UK Stem Cell Foundation.
NSIF was set up by chef David Nicholls after his son Daniel was paralysed from the arms down in a swimming accident in 2003. Claire has been raising funds for this charity following the London Marathon in 2012 when she walked the route in a robotic suit.
To date the charity has given £1m to fund the research in London and a further £240,000 for the work in Poland.
We are very proud to have helped fund raise with Claire and support this pioneering work. Read the full report on bbc.co.uk
