    Manouli, this could be great news. I didn't know you were 28 years post. Your vigorous appraoch to a cure is fascinating. I hope that these trials will occurr soon with positive results. I hope you and others, including myself, will benefit soon from therapy. My hats off to you as you invigorate the whole board with your posts.

    keeping on

    Didn't know anything like this was in the works in the US either. A trial for chronic completes is a pretty big deal. Perhaps there was buzz within the research community that hadn't reached the public. Makes you wonder how a small group like this could commence a chronic complete trial and a larger group like MP can't.

    Copycat.

    Never heard of Ross Mason and HINRI Labs either. Guess everything isn't shared on CC. :/

    Guess not. I am very surprised this came out of the blue, so to speak, to us here at CC.

    Hi, Wise ~

    Is there published work supporting this kind of approach?

    great news. between this clinical trial and Keirstead's, makes me hopeful there are other trials getting ready to surface.

    I should have read that. I hate it when you're right, which seems to be all the time

    I have read a bit here, and don’t want to sound too negative, but not many of them seams to be ‘sci specialists’, only one person on the medical board is a neurosurgeon and one seams to be in the field of neurology and sleep disorders, but that is probably ok, what do I know. Also, to inject these cells only into the csf seams relatively simple, but by all means why not if pre-clinical studies support it and by FDA approval and a go-ahead for clinical trial to investigate this procedures it should be a good thing. Any thoughts on that?
