    Promising new therapy could 'cure' paralyzed patients

    Miami Project moving forward to clinical trials?


    Barbara F. Hollingsworth is The Examiner's local opinion editor.


    Dr. W. Dalton Dietrich, scientific director of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, was in Washington this week seeking U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to start a clinical safety trial of a remarkable new therapy for those suffering from brain and spinal cord injuries.

    Cool

    not to burst your bubble but as a post 20 quad my 2 cents says until something gets to phase 3 of human clinical trials there is not much to get excited about. clinical trials can take anywhere from 5-20 years and millions of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. but stay optimistic and siift through the hype and facts by listening to our dear friend Wise young

    Giving credit where credit is due, the lack of tangible results hasn't discouraged Miami Project from persevering with their fund raising efforts.
