The spine research team at Ganga Hospital in India recently received the NASS Research Award 2019 for its paper on lumbar disc disease, reports The Hindu Times.

The researchers were recognized by the North American Spine Society and The Spine Journal for their paper, "Inflammaging Determines Health and Disease in Lumbar discs — Evidence from Differing Proteomic Signatures of Healthy, Aging and Degenerating Discs."

Dr. S. Rajasekaran, chairman of the department of orthopedics and spine surgery at the hospital, led the research team, which studied several states of diseased discs of the spinal column.

The research found that inflammations due to aging was the cause of degeneration of the lumbar discs.

The Spine Journal will publish the research as a lead paper, and the team received a $10,000 prize.
