    Sorry Dr. Young but just to clarify: the observation that some patient are walking is from seeing patients six months into the trial whereas the lack of improvement in motor and sensory scores is for six week data. Yet you seem to indicate that people are walking without improvement in these scores...

    Understood! I couldn't log in and watch the webcast and only read what was said in the post on here.
    Thank you for the feedback.

    Thanks Paolo. Keith Tansey and Hans Keirstead's presentations were very very informative. Good stuff.

    Perhaps another 6 months for them to connect to the neurons?

    having watched the video of dr. Young, I have to admit the preliminary results he presents are pretty encouraging, above expectations (which in all honistly are pretty low in terms of treating human SCI after decades of false promises and failures).

    I am generally skeptic, and these results once again show the difficulty of the task ahead of us (even with some fibers regrowing past injury site, no significant functionnal recovery).

    I think realistically, one would have to wait 24-36 months post-transplant of cells combined with uninterrupted physical rehab to be able to conculde if it does have an effect or not on recovery.

    If only there were more such extensive and credible clinical trials made as the one of dr. Young I would be much more optimistic about a viable treatment being available to us.

    If there was a way to also combine Ch'ase to the stem cells injection, I believe we would be getting really close to a "cure"

    I really hope it doesn't take another 10 or 20 years to get these kind of trials going (like it appears now, as Acorda are really not in a rush)

    Was there any relation between the amount of cells injected and growth of white matter? Also did the length of time since the injury seem to effect the growth?

    I will just wait for the official report to arrive later this year since I don't know what to make of all this speculation and what if's. Can we expect a real conclusion in the upcoming report? Or will the conclusion still be "wait and see, it takes time so it could still go either way"
