    So what is going on concerning sci research ?

    I just mean nothing has been reported on whats going concerning chronic sci research or trials...is there any current clinical things happening...behind the scenes even? Kinda seems like everything is at a standstill

    Maybe the better question would have been, when's something coming to market.

    Patients received subcutaneous injections of growth hormone somatropin (Nutropin, Genentech) at 0.0125 mg/kg on 6 days/week, or placebo. In addition, the patients received intensive physical therapy for 2 hours per day for 6 months. Both groups were similar in age, body mass index, and waist circumference.

    Always nice to see work being done. This is a different approach than most of the latest ones. I hope they continue to research it.

    Five levels sensation would put me at T8-T10. A nice improvement for feeling the chair so likely more balance. Still no bladder
    T3-T7 complete since Sept 2015

    I'm wondering what sort of pt they had

    Does it say whether these patients acute or chronic?
