This is very good news and a great example of co-operation between the UK and Poland:

Millions of paralysis sufferers are today offered the possibility of a cure for the first time after a new technique pioneered by British doctors allowed a man with a severed spinal cord to recover the ability to walk.

The technique, developed by researchers at University College London and put into practice by surgeons in the Polish city of Wroclaw, uses specialist human cells which repair damage to nasal nerves to enable spinal nerve fibres to re-grow and bridge a severed cord.

On BBC News the British professor said it was a Polish surgeon who brought the idea to them and who performed the surgery. He also cautioned that this is very much at the early stages and by no means is this now some sort of definite fix. They have to build on this, and build on it considerably, before some of the newspaper headlines become accurate. There's a long way to go. But it's a very important achievement, a very important and vital potential unlocking of what the headlines shout.

UK ... they say it was British Doctors

here in Poland they say it was Polish Doctors

Given that it's led by University College London who are trialling it in Wrocław both of those statements are true.

WE POLES AND POLAND WAS AND WILL BE WHITE "MUDZINS"

Not really, but you personally may well be if your attitude shows such an inferiority complex. Nobody would care.

I watched the BBC One Panorama programme about this last night which detailed exactly how the surgery was done and featured interviews with all concerned. Very interesting and for those who missed it and have access to BBC iplayer, it's available to watch for another 11 months.

The programme is called " To walk again ".
It's early days yet, but this gives so much hope for paralysis victims.
What was also great to hear is that the medical teams responsible for this breakthrough are going to make freely available the research behind this, so other scientists around the world can have full access to it. None of the doctors involved are looking at this from a profit angle. Which is as it should be.

And this is the best bit. An amazing achievement too - it could be the next big breakthrough in medicine.
