    Spinal Cord Injury will soon get a quick fix treatment

    lolol look at the title of this one, soon quick fix, do they know something we do not know? lol I like it though.


    Spinal Cord Injury will soon get a quick fix treatment





    A US based company has initiated the World's first neural stem cell trial for spinal cord injury. The proprietary, HuCNS-SC(R) human neural stem cells is imitated by Stem Cells Inc. in an effort to revolutionize treatment for the most critical condition. As of now, the company has started enrolling patients who are in stage - 3 to 12 months post their injury and are leading in complete and (or) incomplete paralysis stage. The clinical trial has launched and being executed at Balgrist University Hospital, University of Zurich, Switzerland. The center is a renowned and one of the most accredited medical centers for spinal cord injury and rehabilitation. The scientists believe that it will unleash a new phase in stem cell treatment. As stem cells are found in cord blood and menstrual blood, it will also lead to popularity of menstrual blood storageand cord blood banking. People from around the world are coming to blood bank to preserve menstrual blood.

    Switzerland: StemCells to Conduct Neural Stem Cell Trial in Chronic Spinal Injury
    press release

    StemCells, Inc. Files to Conduct Neural Stem Cell Trial in Chronic Spinal Cord Injury






    PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov 15, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- StemCells, Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!stem/quotes/nls/stem (STEM 1.10, +0.08, +7.84%) announced today that is has filed an application with Swissmedic, the Swiss regulatory agency for therapeutic products, to conduct a clinical trial in Switzerland of the Company's HuCNS-SC(R) purified human neural stem cells in chronic spinal cord injury patients. If authorized, the study would enroll patients who are three to 12 months post-injury.
    "With this filing we have taken a tangible step to broaden the clinical development of our HuCNS-SC product candidate beyond the brain and into the spinal cord," said Martin McGlynn, President and CEO of StemCells, Inc. "This exciting initiative is supported by extensive preclinical research demonstrating the ability of our proprietary cells to restore lost motor function when transplanted in the chronic spinal cord injury setting. The prospect of extending the treatment window to months or longer following injury would mean that a much larger population of injured patients could potentially benefit from such an approach."

    According to a recent study initiated by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, nearly 1.3 million people in the U.S. alone are estimated to be living with chronic spinal cord injury. Chronic spinal cord injury is characterized as a point in time after injury in which inflammation has stabilized and behavioral recovery has reached a plateau. In spinal cord-injured patients, the chronic phase typically does not set in until several weeks or months following the injury.

    To date, treatment approaches have generally targeted the acute and sub-acute time points post-injury, which are considered to be hours or days following injury. StemCells hopes to address a broader population of spinal cord-injured patients by opening the window of opportunity for therapeutic intervention to months or longer post-injury.

    someone will get it right, I wonder what the title will be. NO MORE SPINAL CORD INJURY PARALYSIS. Here another title from last year:

    Chitin: miracle cure for brain and spinal cord injuries?

    Manoul;i, the hope continues.

    keeping on

    I don't know anything about this miracle "Chitin" therapy stuff you're talking about, however, the StemCell Inc. working and recruiting for the (HuCNS-SC) in Sub-acute Thoracic SCI T2-T11 in clinical trials will be fantastic! It is some serious stem cell clinical trial PROGRESS for chronic SCI.

    http://www.stemcellsinc.com/Therapeu...cal-Trials.htm

    Here's their large collection of YouTube videos to watch about the SCI clinical trial by Stem Cell experts.

    I hate the article titles that portray something to be other than what it is. The sensationalism isn't helpful or constructive for SCI therapies. Why not just announce the clinical trial and leave it at that...ugh...selling hype isn't helpful!

    I agree Gram; it is especially deceitful for the new injuries hoping the cure will come soon. I'd rather they have more research on keeping us healthy enough if a remedy is found. What good is a "cure" if the kidneys, bladder, shoulders etc. are so shot they won't consider the person for the procedure.

    I think most think that all we have to do is line up get the remedy and walk out. If a person is out of shape or in ill health, there is not way they would consider them just for the fact that it would skew the positive results to the left of the graph more.

    For myself, my motivation has always been that I need to be in shape if something does come along and in better shape in case I have to drag my sorry ass thru life. lol. So far it's been the later but well worth the effort.
