The temperature dependence of the resistivity of the novel ladder compound under hydrostatic pressure of up to 8 GPa has been explained by assuming that the relevant length scale for electrical transport is given by the magnetic correlation length related to the opening of a spin-gap in a 1D even-chain spin-ladder (1D-SL). The pressure dependence of the gap was extracted by applying this model to data obtained at different pressures. The dependence of the underdoped cuprate demonstrates a remarkable scaling with the of the 1D-SL compound . This scaling implies that underdoped cuprates at are in the 1D regime and their pseudo-gap below T* is the spin-gap in the even-chain 1D-SL formed at in these materials.
