How the treatment worked:

1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture

2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord

3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.

This guy continues to outdo himself. I didn't think it could get any better than that whole Bob's Burgers business, or the It's Always Sunny RUM HAM. But no. Foolish assumptions on my part to say the least. Our hero is here to show us that Jake the Dog did in fact crack the code when it comes to assembling the perfect sandwich.
