Nicolas Granger describes spinal repair in dogs, more at http://labanimaltour.org/bristol

Some dog breeds have a tendency to spinal problems, some severe enough to cause paralysis of the rear legs and loss of bladder control. Olfactory cells can be removed from the dog, grown up in the lab, and then used to bridge the damaged spinal cord, with some degree of success in restoring movement and bladder control.
