    well. I am hoping. But there is an old saying. " we live in hope and die in despair. "




    Every area of trouble gives out a ray of hope; and the one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.

    The status on this particular trial has changed from recruiting to active but not recruiting. They've evidentally had a huge amount of interest in this trial with 1,500 people but only room for 20 to start their Phase 1 safety. I hope everything continues to go well with it! unite2fightparalysis.org/clinicaltrials

    Does anyone know if this type of therapy is thought to help non-traumatic spinal cord injuries such as spinal cord stoke? I am very confused on how current trials might help some like myself, so if anyone has any insight, I would love the hear it.
    Thanks.

    01) This phase involves 20 patients.
    02) So far 5 patients underwent the procedure.
    03) He expect that all 20 patients will be operated until the end of the first half of 2012.
    04) when talking about the rapid improvement of the patient, he says that animal tests already showed this. In animals the improvements occurred in 2 to 3 weeks.
    05) he says that other patients also had a rapid evolution.
    06) After completed this phase, they will be testing on a larger number of patients.
    07) the queue of people interested in participating in the study is something around 1500 people.
    08) in the first group operated there has been no problem. Patients left the hospital 48 hours after the procedure.
    09) Only after all 20 patients have been operate, they will be able to say that the technique is safe.
    10) Similar tests, but with other types of cells and different techniques, are being tested to treat strokes by another team at another hospital.
    11) he believes that these techniques under developing may be being used to treat patients in 5 or 10 years.
    12) all 5 patients treated so far showed some improvement, but in varying degrees. Some showed improvement in sensitivity, others in sfincters and motor abilities.
    13) they want to discover why a patient have better results than others.

    Marcus good idea.

    It looks foreigners may not be able to join phase2 trial at least because of huge interested patients. May be wait for phase3 or in case of success in phase2 then may be some one else do this same anywhere
