    Hey sport,

    The Miami Project , to a large degree is the main reason there are no viable treatments for spinal cord injury. Nobody in the history of spinal cord research field has spent more, and achieved less. Over $250 Million and they have been goose-egged. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    If I felt Dr. Young was a wash-out, like the Miami Project has been, I would point it out. I don't agree with everything Dr. Young posts, but lets just review:

    In 1990, Dr. Young helped discover a drug that is now the standard treatment for spinal cord injuries. (Methylprednisolone)

    Dr.Young has trained over 500 people to use the MASCIS Impactor. Which by the way he co-invented.

    Founder/ Administrator of the website "CareCure". The most relevant site in the world for information regarding spinal cord injury. Has contributed over 31,000 posts personally.

    Is the driving force behind ChinaSCINet. Human Clinical Trial Network for 400 patients (chronic SCI). Currently 20 hospitals are enrolled.

    Dr. Young has also traveled to India in hopes of setting up a clinical trial network there.

    Dr. Young travels throughout the world teaching and providing the groundwork to advance the science of curative therapies for spinal cord injury.

    Now Schooch1282, you have my complete attention. Please tell me exactly what the Miami Project has achieved, and don't leave anything out.

    Ahh, was going to attend this but somehow lunch at Nikki Beach with friends sounded more appealing
    Though I do enjoy MP benefits.

    I don´t have anything against MP, but their actual active studies and goals are crap.
    -Ramps in buildings are necessary, but it would be usefull to have another ones for people (mind/heart).....

    I am still waiting for you to explain exactly what the Miami Project has achieved (for well over $250 Million Dollars), and don't leave anything out.

    The problem is that i cant see anything in the actual MP studies that makes me think, "hey! this dudes are working hard to cure us"
    I dont know if MP have a secret weapon, but the studies that appear in their website are very light and aren´t focused in the repair of spinal cord.
    I honestly expected more from a center with the resources of MP. 23 years with nothing relevant in the field are a waste of money and time in my opinion.

    Just for the hell of it, I'm going to clock how many posts your beef with Doctor Young doesn't show up in.

    You were absolutely right to separate yourself from your father and anything he said on this website from yourself in the other thread. You should not be judged by any grievance he happened to post again, again and again.

    If your posting here is only to bang the same drum, you're gone.

    Issy, do you think cord blood and lithium is better than what MP offers? Maybe just the terminology it's in clinical trial gives you a rush.

    It would be easy to make cord blood and lithium look like it works, we used to think methylprednisolone worked.

    Because of the methylprednisolone trials we should not think that something that is reported to have favorable results actually does.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    Schooch, you need to get your medication reevaluated... that wonderful drug mp... well because of that I am no longer on a ventilator. So whoever wants to take the claim 4 fame on that medication is well deserved. C3 quad breathing on his own. Miami Project spends lots of money, have not seen anything produced good from them. A couple of good fund raisers with some really nice stars. My money is with Dr. wise. Keep up the good work doc, don't care what your salary is I know you are trying your hardness.
