    It looks like a cartridge with web from spider-man movies. What cells thay have used with primates?

    Why do you feel that way Majed? Honest question ... I'm not convinced.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    lynnifer- he has been incredibly supportive of the chronic population here in Boston. He sponsors events, reaches out to patients, and has really lifted the spirit of patients. He's working on the chronic model.

    I will be very interested to see if there are trauma surgeons who step up and implant these. Frank Reynolds makes no claims about repair but rather "preventing further damage" by giving cells a structure to cling to rather than collapsing from the injury.

    We can all hope that the scaffolding does indeed prevent further damage. The real issues will be how many hours post contusion damage continues and how many get the device in a short window. So far nobody knows what the window of time truly is whether for this or cell interventions.

    I have to be honest and say that I do not have the expertise to evaluate the cell actions that occur but remain skeptical until enough evidence presents for positive beliefs. If this does not work his stock will tank.

    Late this year, the FDA approved the Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) route of InVivo's marketing permission application, allowing the trial of polymer scaffold into human beings early next year. It's absolutely a good green-light path for InVivo because the HUD designation and a subsequent approved Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) would enable InVivo to commercialize the devices in the U.S. faster than the regular Pre-Market (PMA) approval process. Moreover, the FDA committee also reduced the required number of human being to be tested from 10 to 5.

    It all comes down to judge of character. Some dismiss their animal
    results as misleading, but I don't think people like Bob Langer,
    Richard Roberts and Reggie Edgerton would risk their reputations
    on bogus results. They have an accomplished team, promising
    results, plenty of ambition, and they have the ability to raise tens
    of millions of dollars.

    And I don't think they're less convincing than aynone else.

    I agree with Wise Young that more clinical trials, trying many
    different treatments is the key to success.

    That I know the answer is NO.
    Geron NEVER really intended to cure SCI, so they didn't care about HUD/ORPHAN drug status.
    For geron SCI was just the fastest and cheapest way to prove safety of embrionic stem cells products to then move to more profittable deseases.

    Unfortunatly very few people understands the real game so at the end of the day we keep supporting the ones that in fact f...k us.

    Ditto, Bob Langer has a great track record and reputation in the world of science. Hopefully it want be to long before they start adding some type of stem cells to their scaffolding.
