  • Drug
  • Self-healing

Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease or even strokes have something in common with spinal cord injury: they damage the nervous system. This makes them all incredibly difficult to treat. But a therapeutic breakthrough finally seems possible. In the 1990s, Dr. Jerry Silver discovered the root cause for why debilitating damage to the central nervous system cannot be repaired. What was a revolutionary discovery at the time is now accepted science. The NervGen team, which has exclusively licensed the technology that came from Dr. Silver’s lab, is now at an exciting time in the development of a potentially paradigm changing milestone, based on his 30 years of important work. The breakthrough could come as early as next year. We talk about NervGen's approach and plans for a Nasdaq listing with NervGen Executive Chairman Bill Radvak.
