    If anyone accurately knows what's going on, it's rjames. I have 100% confidence in his information. He is continuously and actively involved in SCI research activities on the west coast.

    It is great to have a source like him. Interestingly the protocol requires a 30 day separation between patients.

    Where is the 30 day interval?

    The potocol requires a 30 day wait until the next patient is recruited and if every quailfication is met the patient can undergo the procedure. This would stretch the ten patients over a minium of ten months assuming there was a patient meeting the criteria on the 30th day. If that was waived Geron certainly is not acknowledging it.

    So that means if they get "ideal" candidates in between they won't be treated because 30 days isn't up?

    Yes. There is a 30 day hold between patients no matter how ideal. At a minimum this means 10 months but more likely a year to recruit all ten.

    Do you know what is the purpose of this rule?

    Thank you.
    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

    Likely to try to spread the patients across the facilities that have invested in training for the protocols and the training of the surgeons. Also a measure to place a safety gap between patients in the rare event something unsafe appeared.
