Thread: Progress and prospects of chronic spinal cord injury research in 2015 and 2016

    Does his lab have a contact email? If it's not for profit what were the results, he should have no problem with you divulging. My impression is bone marrow stem cells are obsolete obsolete compared to neural stem cells.

    Spinal cord stimulation (transcutaneous and implanted) seen the most imminent. With Switzerland/Netherlands tossing massive funds at it and UCLA/CalTech having some 14 patents on the works, I would expect devices in use within a couple years. This isn't a cure but it should help some people regain some function.

    After that, I'm at a loss. The various stem cell work seems to yield inconclusive results while scaffolds haven't looked at chronic patients at all so their results are inconclusive because it's impossible to know what the patients would have regained without the scaffolds. What's more, the participant levels are so minute that it's impossible to say anything conclusive.

    As far as I know, everything is still in phases of clinical trial and not available en mass currently...so I think the answer to your question would regrettably be: "nothing...yet"

    I think Mize hit the nail on the head. The participant levels are so minute a cure will never happen within this system.

    Something seismic needs to happen. Not much here to hang a hat on. We need major FDA support and funding. I'm not holding my breath on the Estim. If it was so remarkable – wouldn't the money be raised by now? Holding out hope that there is work going on that no one knows about.

    Only thing I have hope in is the collaborative research being done on chase.
