    exiting uproars about this?

    One now also discus the new pathway research that cord tracts due to not necessarily have to be there to find new paths of connections isn't mandatory (all axons reaching out for all muscles), this due to more understanding of plasticity, which one even didn’t know existed, even in the peripheral nervous system.

    Research is moving.

    This is from June, 2006. What has been done since? Any recent news?
    please . . .test what you already know; and give us what you have. we may not be dying, but we certainly are not living either

    It is from '06. Nothing more to report other then I think Kerr has some collaboration. Sorry, but it was a good call. And it is still valid, -but why are not more ppl up on the barricades for this? Why not? It was seen as great research, but now it has seemed to perish into the haze of other nut research. I am just asking why?

    hey leif,

    why not? cuz the next step is clinical trials and we have no network for them.

    i once asked a researcher why we don't have clinical trials going

    she said they are hard work and expensive

    it's easier for a researcher to get an H.I.H grant and continue research than to organize a clinical network.

    off to bed...more tomorrow, eh

    I believe for sure one can't put this study into ppl, but the demand for trials might have killed this great basic study.

    We are killing sci basic studies as we move on, on our demands for cures and trials without seeing what might be there, just in front of our nose tips.

    And the anti ESC ppl has made a good job so far to do so.

    Too expensive. Will take away from our killing of our own kids in foreign wars. This is pro-lifers at their very best. The cells in freezers are important..SMA babies are already damaged so they don't count. AND even the researchers are so fearful for their own STUFF they stay stuck in their own corners blowing on silent horns.

    Yes, a wide uproar should have been mandatory long time ago.
