    If you read their webpage, you will find that they reference an article from The Washington Post. Read the article. It pretty much says, avoid places like this, but Wu strategically places a...

    It was my understanding that video or audio recordings violate patient medical confidentially. So, why not ask them if it is okay? Well, they might not want to reveal their medical condition, but...

    Sorry, I didn't mean uncontrolled replication. Replication in random labs might discover an aberration, but quite likely it would be dismissed as incompetence. The tests must be well controlled,...

    You know far more about SCI research than I, but I would think that repeating cell testing would be very important, although boring as hell. One might run a test 10 times and always get the same...

    I remember him saying that if 10% of the spinal column was undamaged, then with therapy an SCI patient would appear normal. Of course, certain skills would be lost, e.g. a professional dancer might...

    Again, just my opinion, I agree that when walking, you must either have a brace or use of your trunk muscles. I think that the CPG likely controls not only the legs and feet muscles, but also the...

    Personally, I don't think that is a bad question at all. It seems to me that most of the current treatments establish minimal communications between the brain and the undamaged part of the spinal...

    Personally, I would have been far more impressed if he had come out and sung with no explanation of the crutches. However, I don't think he would have made it that far without the tear-jerking...

    Personally, I don't feel like the desirable solution is mechanical (or electronic). I think the preferable solution is to repair the physical damage to the spinal cord and then help the brain...

    This sounds good, but I feel like I've read this article many times over the past 50 years. I'll reserve my excitement until they have a place to sign up for treatment in the U.S.

    The down side of www.u2fp.org or even www.christopherreeve.org is that lots of major corporations will match gifts to universities, but not charities. So, a gift to Rutgers or Case Western gets...

    Generalizations can set valid expectations or can be grossly misleading. For example, a new oral drug for headaches would certainly take many years in clinical trials. However, a cure for the Zika...
