    Hi, Dr. Young. Does this delay mean that the arrangements are altering again? As far as I know, the study completion date was originally scheduled for September 2011, thus the mentioned "shifting" is more than notable. Does 2012 still hold good as a realistic term for the general public? Thank you!

    Knowing how things work (especially in SCI research), I think that a year or two might be added to this "best case scenario". I hope to be wrong, though. Good luck!

    Thank you, Dr. Young.

    Overall, this looks extremely promising. Apx. how much do we need? And do you believe that chronics really have a chance? Will it be like a million dollars for a therapy?

    I can see what I can do with some concerts w/ very famous bands if I had more info..

    Spidergirl-There is another thread talking about amounts, etc. From what I read, they have raised about $79,000 so far. They will need about $3 million for a phase 2 trial and $24 million for the phase 3 trial. The site to go to is www.justadollarplease.org Check them out when you have time.

    I am curious as to how promising these trials are? I came here almost 5 years ago, when I was injured...and I am sorry to say but everyone was telling me that when they were injured...everyone would say they were told or read "3-5 years" This was the same for me. Looks like Wise' trials could be promising but if these really were proven in animals to work there should be hundreds of companies jumping at the chance too support.

    Either which way it gets the ball rolling for clinical trials which is Huge. I am totally more concerned as to why the government wont support curing people.

    I will check out the thread.

    Thanks.

    um, this is even more disturbing. $1 a day is totally helpful but the goal is $27 million ???

    Can someone please direct me to the thread where a rodent or animal is recovering from these therapies? Because I find it absolutely insane that something this Huge is not being funded.

    I'm not in the loop but i suspect they will be applying for some N.I.H funding.

    Why should the government support it when we don't support it.

    By that I mean as an example I just went to NSCIA And the United Spinal Association web sites, I searched, clinical trial, Davies, Kierstead, Geron, SCInetUSA and other top stuff and got an old Geron story at one, and that was it.

    Spidergirl,

    Just testing a patient, preparing the cells in a GMP facility, operating and transplanting the cells, doing 6 weeks of rehabilitation, and evaluating the patient for a year will cost $100,000 per patient. The phase 3 trial that we are planning has 4 groups of 60 patients (lithium, cell transplant, cell-transplant plus lithium, rehabilitation only) or $24 million.

    Please understand that spinal cord injury clinical trials cost millions of dollars in the United States. That is why there have been so few (or no) spinal cord injury clinical trials. The only trials are those that are being funded by companies. Geron is likely to spend over $40 million on their phase 1 trial alone. We have to start thinking in terms of such amounts.

    A lot of people are just sitting around waiting for clinical trials to start without understanding the finances behind such trials. They think that all I need to do is to snap my fingers and $24 million will show up. People are expecting miracles and that somebody else will take care of the problem. Please, history suggests we don't have a sugar daddy who will take care of the problem.

    The concept behind the $1 a day project is to find about 10,000 people in each city/region to support a clinical trial program. If 10,000 people donate $1 a day, that adds up to $3.65 million per year. If Austin (Texas), for example, had 10,000 people donating $1 a day, that will support the hospital there (Brackendridge) to 1-2 years of clinical trials.

    We are of course not relying solely on the JustaDollarPlease to provide all the funding for the trial. We are working with the hospitals to reduce the costs. I am working with Stemcyte to help them raise money for the trial. We will be applying to the government for funding. Most of the centers that we are working with have other ways of raising the money in their region. For example, in Austin, the Lone Star Foundation is raising the funds for the trial in Brackenridge.

    Wise.

    spidergirl; you're not alone. These questions are bewildering to us all. Bottom line is that Wise has said he is starting trials. We need these trials to start now and show results, real results, quickly. I'm not the only one expressing this; we all are expressing this in our differnet situations. We need progress not delays.

    keeping on
