    Brain Injury Open House

    We held a Brain Injury Open House on June 13. About 20 people showed up and we had a quite a good discussion. I thought that people might like to see the slides of the lecture that I gave to the families.

    Thank you for sharing the latest news.

    I look forward to hearing about any news about trials of cord blood cells in stroke (especially in Europe).
    Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

    I believe that such trials will be coming to Europe and Asia. In the United States, the FDA has been sponsoring a series of meetings called STEPS (Stem Cell Therapies as an Emerging Paradigm in Stroke), designed to encourage investigators to do clinical trials using stem cells for stroke (http://stroke.ahajournals.org/content/40/2/510.full) I attended the STEPS III meetings last February. STEPS I and II were held in 2007 and 2010 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21273569).

    Derived from the STAIR (Stroke Treatment Academic Industry Roundtable), which is an "invitation" only forum for leading opinion leaders to meet and talk about all therapies of stroke, including drug therapies of acute stroke, STEPS is a meeting of clinicians and investigators interested in a consensus on stem cell therapies started for stroke. European and Asian investigators attended the meeting.
