    Yes, probably, but also no.

    Sorry for the confusing response, but that really is the answer.

    It is possible that some neurons will have to grow all the way from the brain down to lower motor...

    There is also a lot of involvement from people with SCI and their families, and a lot talks about how to connect with research and advocate for the research you want to be done. I have been to a...

    These criteria don't necessarily discount a trial from being "legitimate" though. Many clinical trials have looked at nutritional supplements that are not under FDA regulation. As for devices,...

    That is correct. The past few years they have combined the July and August open houses into one bigger event, on a Thursday, in July.

    So here are some general answers to questions that have been in the thread so far:

    -This study was done only on rats.

    -Neurons don't necessarily die after injury. Most people with SCI have...

    Believed to be "safe enough" based on what? We have published results on four males with SCI. That's hardly representative of the SCI population.

    This research is fine-tuning an idea that was...

    The initial point from Silvio was that researchers "don't care" about getting this treatment to people.

    I never meant to say that you or anyone else personally don't care about safety. I suggest...

    They shouldn't be in a hurry. This is a product that is literally implanted into an injured central nervous system. Rushing it to market without working out all the details needed to ensure that it...

    What I am saying is that you can't infer that researchers "don't care about making this therapy available as soon as possible" just because the completion date is far off. That's an incredibly unfair...

    Based on the completion date, you think that the researchers don't care about making this therapy available to people? Do you judge everyone before you know them?

    This is a surgical procedure that...
