    Jim,
    Any news that you can share from the meeting? Any news from the FDA?

    Hey Lee, we are in the process of choosing a place to process the cells.

    The meeting yesterday was to work on the protocol for the 6 week outpatient training, following the surgery. Great progress toward consensus was made.

    We are getting there!

    Hey Jim, could there be some kind of partnership with local lodging for some discounted rates for the extended stay of study participants?

    Jim.. wasn't the 90 required 90 days reply from the FDA regarding the approval or disapproval for the trial already came and went?

    The FDA insisted that one facility process all the cells, rather than each hospital. Once we find a place and the FDA approves them, we will go forward.

    The trial I'm in covers the hotel and travel cost. The hotel gives them a discount for study participants. I have them use my hilton honors account so I rack up points and get free stays other places.

    That would be prudent.. uniform processing of cells

    Its really good they are doing this.

    It has been raised as a big problem with getting people on trials that local ethics committees are blocking this.
    In addition lots of funding organisations won't allow their funds to be used for this purpose. I won't name the names I know about, but its another massive problem with getting progress to our cause

    @Jim, do you have any idea about how long it's going to take to get a new facility to process the cells
