    Confidence I like that. Wise have you seen any correlation between spasticity and recovery? Good or bad.

    why would anyone complain about profits in science when profits fuel science in a very big way. Yea its nice to help but watch how fast that help comes rolling in when theres something to be gained from it. fraud is bad, mis representing results is bad, but profits in and of itself isn't bad.

    Generally, spasticity goes down with exercise.

    My understanding is that Stemcyte has many goals i.e. to develop cures for many deseases including SCI, but not just SCI, which is more than ok for me.
    JamesMcM asked about possible trials in Canada, and that generated some questions in my mind, so I asked.
    Is it correct that Stemcyte has exclusive commercialization rights to the therapy?

    Paolo,

    I don't know why you keep asserting that Stemcyte is trying to cure many diseases including SCI. Stemcyte is a small company and it has invested significantly into clinical trials of umbilical cord blood mononuclear cell therapies for spinal cord injury. Stemcyte has invested much more into spinal cord injury than any other condition.

    Stemcyte has exclusive commercialization rights to what the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers develops in its research on umbilical cord blood cells described in the research agreement. Several patents have been submitted, relating to production of mononuclear cells from plasma-depleted umbilical cord blood cells, lithium treatment of cord blood cells, and other aspects of umbilical cord blood cells.

    Wise,

    I think that there is a little misunderstanding here, let me try to clarify:
    I have watched the video of the talk you gave at the 2013 Wold Cord Blod Congress (BTW I have found your talk absolutely wonderfull)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaD5oVoBt7c

    During your talk you mention all the deseases that Stemcyte is involved with other than SCI:
    -Talassemia
    - Stroke
    - AIDS
    - Macular degeneration
    - ALS
    - Heart failure

    As I understand it to expand the indications it is good from many points of view.
    I am happy that you say that "Stemcyte has invested much more into spinal cord injury than any other condition" while I if I were to invest in Stemcyte I would for sure prefer to see that Stemcyte is working on multiple indications, so I guess what is happening is just the best possible compromise.

    Perhaps you are confusing what StemCyte does with what it allows other people to do. For example, see http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...-78130992.html to read how StemCyte supports stroke research by licensing the use of its intellectual property (IP) to Professor John Lin. This is what Dr. Young said at 14:24 in the video. Essentially, StemCyte is helping others to do research on ways to use its product.

    Somehow, I think you knew this already.

    Thanks for the link, I didn't know about it. Things are even more clear now.

    Dr. Wise, How can someone participate in phase III trials? Can a U.S. Citizen take part abroad? Is there a control group? Does it usually involve untethering? I apologize if this is not an appropriate place to ask, please bump me to where I should be. Thanks in advance!

    We will be doing phase III clinical trials in the China, India, Norway, and the U.S. We are putting together the packages and application to apply to the U.S. FDA for the trial. As soon as we have approval of the trials, we will announce on http://clinicaltrials.gov and also on this site.
