DS: First, we are working with formulations experts to identify the most efficient and easy to use approach to inhibiting fidgetin proteins at the site of SCI (currently we're using siRNA encapsulated in nanoparticles).
In the past few years, we've found that a class of proteins called fidgetins are normally utilized to inhibit axon growth and neuronal regeneration.
We now want to determine the best ways of inhibiting fidgetins after injury, figure out the time period within which fidgetins can be targeted to promote functional recovery after SCI--in other words, is our new therapeutic particularly useful for acute injuries or can we also apply it to treat chronic sufferers of SCI (people injured months or even years ago)?
