    InVivo reports profit, expects to start human trial
    By Lori Valigra

    Spinal cord injury treatment company InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (OTCBB:NVIV) reported a profit for the first quarter of 2012, and said its biopolymer scaffolding is slated to enter human clinical trials later this year.

    InVivo shares were up about 6 percent in mid-morning trading to $2.45.

    The company said it expects to start a pilot human clinical trial of the scaffolding in the second half of 2012, pending approval of an Investigational Device Exemption application by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Following a meeting with the FDA held in April, the company said it is expecting the product to be regulated under the Humanitarian Use Device/Humanitarian Device Exemption pathway that should accelerate commercialization.

    Is this about the bold fat guy who claims to have been paralysed and then cured himself by reading lots of books?
