Melbourne researchers have found a breakthrough for cerebral palsy. They can now stop, and even reverse brain damage by pumping cord blood back into the newborns, who are often starved of oxygen. Low oxygen levels during childbirth can cause severe brain injuries.
Researchers at the Monash Medical Centre feel that with this, they will be able to combat cerebral palsy effectively. At least, the percentage of children born with the disease can be brought down significantly. This new breakthrough treatment is expected to transform the lives of children who suffer from this debilitating condition.
