    Novartis Anti-Nogo ATI355 trial now in the US

    I haven't visited the cc-forum for a while and somebody may have posted this already.

    I read in a journal that the FDA did not allow Novartis to start the ATI355 trial in the US earlier because they had concerns about the continous release of the antibody directly into the spinal cord.

    Now - obviously since there were no side-effects after 3 years - and Novartis applies a mix of direct release and injections of the antibody into the spinal cord, the FDA approved the trial in the US:

    Yes, if you are injured for a few days... still no combination therapy in the offing.

    Dr.Wise,

    You mentioned that blocking the inhibitors is a part of therapy which is needed to be done in chronic SCI , are you thinking to add Nogo or other drugs which inhibit inhibitors in this clinical trial together with Umbilical Cord Blood+Lithium?
