    Report from China

    Dear Friends

    Just talked with Jake's mother. They are getting everything they need from a great staff and friends and Jake's tests are all negative. He will have the surgery early next week. The food in the hotel is good and they have bought 23 first run CDs at 1 dollar each. There are a number of SCI and ALS patients from all over the world that are now receiving the injections. Some have returned to China for their second set of injections after a positive first response. It took his mother awhile to get over the culture shock. The hospital is rather dirty compared to western ones and many toilets in shops (even Starbucks) all over the city have no more than a hole in the cement for toilets. Better look down when you go!

    Thanks for your concern:

    He will be there for 5 weeks. Dr. Huang will inject OEGs above and below his complete C4-5 SCI injury. This procedure has been done to over 400 patients so far by Dr. Huang.

    Dr. J.J.

    "Some have returned to China for their second set of injections after a positive first response. ..... "

    Do you know if their second set of injections involve an open spine surgery (laminectomies)
    Is it any further progress in recovery in those who had the second set of injections?

    Thanks a lot.

    I wish Jake the best of luck.

    Thought you were onto something else, didn't realize he was having the OEG procedure. Thanks.

    The second injection uses the same procedure as the first.

    Hi JJ, A good friend of mine Wanda left this morning. Her daughter and daughters boyfriend are traveling with her. Please give your wife and Jake heads up. Life sure turns into a big family quick over there. TIA
