    7th international symposium on experimental spinal cord repair and regeneration

    From Wings for Life:

    The 7th international symposium on experimental spinal cord repair and regeneration that was held on February 19th to 21st 2009 in the Brescia Medical School (Italy) successfully gathered numerous internationally recognised scientists such as Prof. Rita Levi Montalcini (Nobel Laureate for Medicine). This 3 day symposium encouraged these specialists to exchange their knowledge in areas that are so specific that they would normally never have a chance to discover.


    A 4 pages meeting report is now available here.

    Leo, there's a great novel from Erich Maria Remarque: "All Quiet on the Western Front". You may have read it.

    Hello Leo,

    I am afraid I missed the stimulation implant... Are you referring to Prof. Milan Dimitrijevich and/or Dr Rudiger Rupp?

    Secrets.. I learned a few, but are sicrets!
    In general I had a good feeling as we have some good researcher looking for the cure we want, but not enough. I am more and more convinced that we (the patient) need to lead more the cure process as it could go faster here in Europe and in the rest of the world.
    Wing for Life Foundation is very cure oriented and I am sure in the future we'll here good news coming from their work. I also can say that there is a lot of interest for IPS, some very good results are expected soon and clical trials with IPS seems to be possible in the near future (few years).

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    I have missed Prof. Klaus presentation as I wasn't there yet, but I have an abstract. If you give me via PM your email I can scan it and send it to you.

    Unfortunatly I have seen at the symposium a total of just 6 wheelchair, one was mine, 2 where my friend, then an italian researcher (Giuliano Taccola D4, BTW he does not belive a cure is possible soon). Other 2 I have seen for a little time and I didn't have the chance to approach them. Consider the symposium was in english, nevertheless I hoped to see more patients

    Next saturday is the italian day for SCI, there will be a meeting on SCI research in Milan. This time is goin to be in italian, so no excuses for patients to miss it! I am curious to see how many weelchairs I am going to see there.

    Belive that the West is beyond 83° 12' W nowadays. Anyhow, theres another great novel or two out there too – Europeans do nothing. Name one PM discussing a SCI cure in public. Any from EU?
