    Are you saying it has been stated that foreigners can join the trail if they cover expenses?

    tumbleweeds, I had answered this question regarding participation in the Hong Kong trials. I had answered at the time that we could not accept patients who are not residents of Hong Kong because hospital fees would be charged to such patients. However, this situation varies depending on the trial and funding. Recently, for example, the Hong Kong SCI Fund approved funding for a clinical trial in Kunming that will compare the effects of untethering surgery and no surgery in patients that receive the Kunming intensive locomotor training program for 3-6 months. This trial would not be restricted to Chinese patients. Patients from the U.S., for example, would be able to participate in such a trial, just like Chinese patients. However, of course, patients have to pay for their own travel and expenses of any caregivers who might be traveling with them. I was just in Kunming and they tell me that they would welcome foreign patients. I will comment in a separate post about access of patients to phase II and III trials that we are planning for umbilical cord blood mononuclear cell and lithium clinical.

    Wise.

    As well am I. It would be real nice if 2 or more people going could split housing expenses. Ill make a post about that if I end up going.

    It is. If I had a complete injury and could swing it with work, would def go. When done, you will be in top shape and ready to receive the therapy when approved.

    Is it just because I am sci and impatient or has phase 3 been taking abnormally long to get started? I am posing this as a serious question and not trying to sound combative though it may ....genuinely interested
