    Is this just a 1 in 1600 chance or is this something promising. Dr Wise what is your take on this.

    This doesnt really tell us much more than we already know. Patients are paying large sums for an unproven therapy. Check the forum for threads on X-Cell.

    we keep hearing about these patients receiving positive effects from these treatments but not a one is to be found in real life.

    I think this debate will go on and on until a more substantial and PROVEN Cure for functional return is achieved. Patients living with SCI are so desperate for even the smallest percentage of change are willing to take the plunge and try out these therapies. It's a game of chance.

    Do they work? Maybe they do in some ways. Maybe they do restore a dermatome or two of sensory return. Maybe they do improve your bladders condition so that you get less UTIs. Maybe they do reduce spasticity. Maybe they do improve existing muscle strength. Maybe it does nothing but have a placebo effect. Maybe maybe maybe!

    SCIs spend $$$ on FES bikes, Lokomat sessions, intensive therapy sessions, drugs, etc etc in the hope that they will provide some return. And some will continue to spend $$$ on unproven therapies. I hear the "Every injury is unique" statement all the time. And with that you can always turn it on it's head "Well, this might work for my unique injury - I have to give it a try".

    The bottom line is we dont know. And that is why we need human clinical trials - to answer those questions.

    On a related note, Alok Sharma (the indian doctor) spoke at the convention in Taiwan to which Wise attended. I know that his clinic in India has been working with Adult Stem Cells derived from bone marrow. Maybe some more clarity on this procedure and its efficacy can come out of his talk. Lets see.

    This is the X-cell Center in Cologne, Germany. This is unproven therapy. Several people here have gone there. Please do a search for "X-cell" on this site for comments about this place.
