    Sebastiang,

    I have been "silent" because I have no new information to offer to the discussion. Everything that I know is based on the same presentations and press conferences that people here have read.

    Why I'm excited about InVivo

    I've said it before and will say it again. I have a great interest in InVivo because of their science and Dr. Bob Langer! Please read the following article to get a understanding who Dr. Langer is and why he makes InVivo a very legit player in the biotech world.

    At 16.26 in the afternoon on an icy Tuesday in January, Robert Langer is in his office at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a Harvard University freshman called Lulu Rebecca Tsao. Langer met Tsao last year in Finland when he and her stepfather were collecting awards from the Millennium Prize Foundation. Now she is in Cambridge, she has
    come to ask his advice on which projects to do, and Langer offers to show her around the lab. A quick tour would be great, she says. It will have to be quick. In my hand there is a three-page printout of the day’s schedule provided by Bethany Day, the assistant who keeps Langer’s diary. He has four minutes until what would be the fourteenth meeting since breakfast — if he had had breakfast. And his research lab is not a thing to tour in four minutes: try four hours. It is the biggest in the chemical-engineering department, and probably the biggest in MIT. It may well be one of the biggest academic labs in the world under a single principal investigator. Its 1,300 square metres take up most of this floor of MIT’s building E25 and some of a floor above. But Langer doesn’t mention any of that. He leads us from room to room pointing out postdocs and pausing at embryonic stem-cell cultures.

    InVivo Therapeutics Engages FDA With Second Product, A Novel Drug Releasing Hydrogel

    Heres a new release by InVivo that fans of this company might find interesting.

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV:$2.37,00$0.08,003.49%) , a developer of groundbreaking technologies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurological injuries, today announced a novel hydrogel based product for the treatment of acute and sub-acute sciatica or radicular pain of the low back and legs and/or acute and sub-acute radicular pain of the neck or arms.
    On June 29, 2012 InVivo submitted a request to meet with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Office of Combination Products and the appropriate representatives from the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) to discuss a novel combination product.
    InVivo’s new technology is intended for the treatment of acute and sub-acute neck, back, and leg pain conditions that affect over 4.2 million patients annually in the United States. The product consists of a novel injectable hydrogel specifically engineered to allow for an effective, sustained release of a number of molecules, including methylprednisolone. A summary of the underlying research and development of this product was published in the Journal of Biomaterials in January 2011 and has led to a broad platform of neurological interventions.
    “For years InVivo has been pressed by patients like myself to develop treatments for herniated disks and other neurological pain issues associated with the aging baby boomers in the United States, and now we have an answer in InVivo’s hydrogel platform,” said InVivo CEO Frank Reynolds. “We believe that the opportunity for our new treatment could exceed $22B annually, and by late 2012 we plan to partner with a global leader in pain therapies to bring this product to market.”
    Said InVivo CMO Eric Woodard, MD “We feel that the hydrogel addresses several specific limitations of current therapies by allowing predictable sustained release of therapeutic molecules. Additionally, it exhibits the novel property of syneresis, or shrinkage, that significantly enhances its safety profile in neurological applications.”
    Added Reynolds, “We are developing technologies to treat both acute and chronic neurological injuries, and our first product, a biomaterial based scaffold for acute spinal cord injuries, is currently under review at FDA. We look forward to receiving approval to begin human studies for that product in 2012.”

    InVivo requests FDA meeting for spinal cord treatment
    By Don Seiffert



    Cambridge-based InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corp. (NVIV), which develops treatments for spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurological injuries, has requested to meet with the FDA for its second product this year, a hydrogel-based treatment of acute and sub-acute neck, back, and leg pain conditions.

    The product is specifically intended for sciatica or radicular pain of the low back and legs and acute and sub-acute radicular pain of the neck or arms, which affect more than 4.2 million patients annually in the U.S., according to a statement. It consists of an injectable compound which slowly releases a number of molecules, including methylprednisolone, an anti-inflammatory drug. A summary of the research was published in the Journal of Biomaterials in January.

    Frankly, I think InVivo is doing some good work. They are just over-selling it to get air time. The bridge he talks about is his product. Everything thing else flash and glitter. I mean if you don't say "stem cells", "cure", and "walking", no one will listen to you.
    thanks kmorgen,

    8 days but 5 years to get him back to walking

    i believe they have other product but honestly don't keep up as before, cuz i have read many abstracts to know we have many products ready for trial.

    and you are right on the key words in order to get air time

    at this point i wouldn't care if they straight lied to get air time

    i don't think they would cuz from the ones i've met reputation means a lot

    air time, han's kierstead said his time on 60 minutes got him further than some years did

    i hope you get the opportunity to go to this years W2W, meeting these people gives you a whole new perspective

    thanks again

    Actually, my complaint was that journalists sensationalize the story to get people to watch. Frank Reynolds tried to correct him several times, but was willing to let him go, rather than say, "Wait, that's not what i said."

    I don't really blame Frank. The publicity is good for him and InVivo.

    Basically, I don't really care, except that the gist of the story is, InVivo has a cure for SCI, i.e. "They're paralyzed on the left side of your screen and now they are running on the right side of the screen." I think that is a bad message. Let's try to keep it real.

    Finally, when i said, "Everything thing else flash and glitter." I didn't mean everything else InVivo is doing, just everything else in this story.
