Hyper interleukin 6

Hyper interleukin 6 or hIL-6 is a protein that was recently used by German scientists to make a paralyzed mice walk again. The mice was paralysed by spinal cord injury. The protein was used in a gene therapy to target a few nerve cells to stimulate the regeneration of nerves. This resulted in regeneration of a neural link that was hitherto considered irreparable. This is significant in the search for curing permanent disabilities resulting from spinal cord injuries.
