    That would be great!

    I am becoming sceptical about chondrointinase as I have seen many conflicting papers about it, but hopefully I am wrong & chondroitinase will make it to clinical trials with positive results.

    In any case there are also promising therapies that don't use chondroitinase.

    I got nerve rerouting from Xiao but got no result.

    Very discouraging for me and loss of all money i had.

    Will this surgery effect on my recovery if i go through some stem cell treatment in coming times? If breakthrough happens for cure will i be able to get recovery of xiao surgery can effect it?

    Jawaid, this nerve bridge is not the same thing as your rerouting with Xiao at all. It's very different work.

    The CWRU approach blends two nerve-regrowth methods, leveraging the power of each. Nothing is sacrificed like a "reroute".

    Just stop wasting money on unproven therapies, damn it. If you have money help the science, help us all.
    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

    To add BBC report from 2008 about chondroitinase to this rat race...

    Apparently this one is good in chronic injuries

    When i e-mail mark of spinal research .org uk and as them how this is doing or what way was it going this here was is answer so it looks good but time will tell it is good to see that they are all working together

    ISRT have continued the funding of this exciting molecule. The Cambridge group received the necessary funds from us earlier in the year to convert the molecule into a human-compatible version and early results suggest this conversion (which requires a lot of patient molecular biology) has been successful. This is an excellent step forward. In the meantime the group have made the molecule available to a number of other labs around the world and they too are reporting promising results. Such corroboration from independent labs is strengthening the case to take it into clinical trials. As I have said on many occasions, collecting appropriate pre-clinical data to support the use of any new treatment in humans is a protracted process and not peculiar to SCI.

    Chondroitinase is one of the treatment concepts we are very actively advancing to the clinic. In addition to this we are funding a Schwann cell therapy which is being submitted to the American regulatory authorities for clinical trial. We also have olfactory ensheathing cells being developed in the UK under the leadership of a leading neurosurgeon. And there is omega-3, a compound that aims to reduce secondary damage immediately after injury.

    Other news includes good progress on setting up a SCI registry and database in the UK.
