Scientists have helped dogs to walk again after severe spinal injuries - offering hope for paralysed human patients.

Movement was restored to the dogs' hind legs by bridging breaks in the spinal cord using olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) taken from their noses.

The cells support nerve fibre growth that maintains a communication pathway between the nose and the brain.
