    i think this sums up the current situation

    Stem cell therapies

    Stem cell research is in its relatively early stages. While laboratory and animal research to date holds great promise for treating a range of illnesses in the future there are currently no stem cell therapies that are recommended for people with spinal cord injury.

    there are not more therapies available only because we have no network setup up to try existing potential treatments on humans

    i have read for years abstracts where at the end it says this treatments is ready for human clinical trials
