View Full Version : Very new SCI
06-25-2004, 09:13 AM
My mom's friend's boss's son (whew!) was found in his building at the bottom of his stairs with his neck broken, C6-7, this morning and was rushed to NYU. As of right now he has sensation but no movement below his injury. I think because he has sensation he isn't a candidate for the ProNeuron study but I could be wrong. Are there any other trials going on for acute SCI's? Any advice I can pass along?

Do an advanced search using activated macrophage. The best I could find requires definitively diagnosed complete sci, c6 or below, less than 3 weeks. I assume this means sensation is a no-no, which sucks. I met a guy in nyc, I think the Proneuron probably spared him LOTS.

I would still contact one of the Proneuron sites and ask for him to be screened ASAP. Kessler in NJ is now an official site as well. You can find all the Proneuron sites at their website: www.proneuron.com (http://www.proneuron.com)

Well, I gave them the info but the boy is a lucky SOB. Supposedly, he was trying to ride his bike down the flight of stairs and flipped it. He was getting movement back this afternoon but we'll see how badly he's affected. Ahhh, boys.
