    There are no samples of benefit for chronic injuries to talk about until the experiments are completed and data published in a journal. The story link I created for this thread was a post out of a "chronic" spinal cord injury blog describing a potential drug strategy for SCI regeneration. I have no idea what you think the article actually said. It must have been on an entirely different subject matter than the one you're posting on.

Damm it would of been nice if it was that simple...
    You're welcomed Moe. If everything went 100% on the animal experiments in proving the mechanism of the drug, it would definitely shave time off since the safety has already been proven to the FDA in other trials. We'll just have to keep an eye on this and see if it comes to fruition for us. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Would this drug offer stabilization? Many of us will get worse with age.

    Is this research 7 years old related ?
    I don't see big rush here...

    BTW Grammy, what would be the name of that drug we are talking about here?

    No, the osteoarthritis paper is unrelated. I don't have the drug name.

    I believe this is what Geller is working on:

    It is interesting in that reference is made to "prevention and treatment of glial scars." To me that suggests the treatment may be of value to post-acute injuries. Perhaps Wise can render a more learned opinion. Note that this is undergoing patent review.
