Stem cell therapy helps pet dog walk

In Chennai, Inida, a 9 month old Rambo is able to walk and run like any other boxer, the breed of dogs, best known for being boisterous. But it is a miracle that the dog is able to do so, because 6 months ago, a road accident had left him with a broken spinal cord. And then, Science came to his rescue. Rambo is the first successful patient in the world to have recovered from a spinal injury through stem cell therapy, paving the way for others with similar injuries.
