CJO, I did not mean to make you appear an idiot. My apologies if It looked or sounded that way. I do believe this is a simple question that we must ask of our doctors who treat us. What will it take or them to treat our paralysis, our deformity? If it takes an inservice of the hospital's doctors who deal with SCI and done by a layman patient then that's where we have to start.

As for OEGs, I think we will see human work in this area in the next year or so. Yes, in the USA.

And DA? Everytime a clinical trial is mentioned at Hopkins so is the death of a healthy test subject who should have gone in for treatment when she began experiencing side effects. She waited two days and died. Now one of the top trials hospitals in the US has slowed human research to a crawl in all areas including AIDS.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
