    Jim, could you please clarify for me "If you don't have a qualified surgeon near you". Does that mean that surgeons from various locations around the country will be trained in the surgical procedure for this therapy and will be available for compassionate use at the same time as the surgeons at the centers you mentioned? Also, if that's the case, what about the therapists? Will they be trained and available for compassionate use outside the listed centers as well? Or, is a trip to the east coast a necessity to participate in the therapy under the compassionate use clause?
    Thank you.

    tumbleweeds, I would assume the Expanded Compassionate Use (ECU) legislation includes rules that must be followed. For example, one requirement would be for ECU to follow the same protocol as the clinical trial. Training will be necessary for surgeons and physical rehab professionals. Maybe interested parties will come and observe the surgery/walking. Maybe Wise has this planned out, I don't know.

    There is no safety issue with this therapy. Twenty-eight subjects received the umbilical cord blood injections and none lost function. The majority regained the ability to walk with assistance, and many regained the ability to pee and poop. These were all complete patients.
    Are we talking human trial results? That would be amazing!!!!!
