    PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS OF CHRONIC SPINAL CORD INJURY RESEARCH in 2014 and 2015

    Dear all,

    We just published a post providing a summary of the important developments in chronic spinal cord injury research last year (focussing on the research strategies which offer a good potential for clinical translation for chronic SCI). With regard to the progress yet to be accomplished, we also look at the research advocacy environment, we highlight some interesting initiatives by some of the larger SCI foundations and come back to the role and the uniqueness of the EndParalysis foundation in that context. Read the post here: http://endparalysis.org/spinal-cord-...ards-recovery/
    I hope you will find it informative.

    Excellent read ...

    I was under the impression that Dr Silver gave up on Ch'ase because of Acorda's patent and had developed his own peptide. I must be wrong?

    Hi Lynnifer,
    Indeed Dr Jerry Silver mainly works on his peptide now, but he does still consider some combination including Ch'ase. Ch'ase, unlike the peptide so far, does work in chronic settings. However the main issue for Ch'ase is to fine-tune the delivery method and to make it safe. This is the purpose of the Chase-it project launched by Spinal Research in the UK.

    Wow, very good! Is there any talk about The potential timeframe when Dr. Edgertons transcutaneous epidural stimulator progress will be published?

    Nobody knows. The study hasn't even opened for the NeuralRecovery Tech. human trial recruitment yet. ARM/HAND LINK & LEG LINK

    Additional information on Epidural Stimulation Clinical Trials and Future Planning would probably be found in this thread LINK when more information becomes available on it. Corinne's post was a compilation of all the SCI studies that were in the news last year.

    Huh, well that's weird if he has made the statement that he's seen significant recovery in patients with it already. Maybe they did something similar to the four paraplegics, wasn't much news on them getting recruited before.

    It's my understanding that Dr. Edgerton is impressed with results that he's seen so far. Both of the clinical trial links I already posted today said "Spinal cord injury 1 or more years prior". I don't know what you think that criteria would mean.
