    I wonder that about every trial. The only stuff you hear is promotional type stuff. Like the Reeves 4 guys. They are just out speaking about Reeves, trying to raise money. Which is great but it would be sweet if someone would wonder onto this site from one of these big studies. They must sign non-disclosure agreements.

    My summary-

    An Australian online tech/science news service.

    There's a photo of an Australian Rugby player who suffered a spinal cord injury during a match.

    The journal article referenced in the online news story is:

    http://journal.frontiersin.org/artic...017.00358/full

    This is a rat lumbar plexus injury study. They implanted parts of an avulsed nerve into its spinal cord origin and identified new spinal nerve growth at the site of the implant.

    Senior author is Dr. Thomas Carlstedt, a surgeon specializing in repairing nerves. He's written numerous articles about techniques for repairing brachial plexus and lumbar plexus injuries. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/...r_uid=19064178

    The human study is a single case report from 2012. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21838504
    The subject had suffered a brachial plexus injury and underwent surgery to restore motor function. 10 years later they were able to elicit an biceps tendon reflex. The author commented that this was the first case in which reattaching the brachial plexus to its spinal cord origins resulted in a spinal reflex.

    The news article itself is one of wish and hope.

    The "wish" comes from a quote provided by the senior author:

    "The strategy of encouraging new growth from spinal neurons could potentially be of use in other injuries of the nervous system", researcher Thomas Carlstedt says.

    The "hope" appears to be for the SCI athlete in addition to others with SCI paralysis. It was likely written by the news article author:

    "The hope is it may lead to new treatments where a severed spinal cord can be reconnected by implanting grafts that encourage nerve regrowth."
