Even better is, since the "real life" injuries were not likely to have been recent injuries, it's probable that further research will show that the age of the injury has no bearing on the efficacy of the treatment. It might take a little longer for the treatment to be fully effective, but this is far more than having no hope at all.

Good news, for people and pets.

This is good news. Hopefully it'll translate well into treatments for humans. Good news, good news.
