I just loved this article and the whole story of how this dog was saved from a life of paralysis by cells implanted into his nose. Now that is a break through that we can celebrate. Thank you Cher, for submitting this "feel good" story.

I believe in autologous transplants the cells come from the patient him/herself. I just looked up autologous.
