    The FDA announced in April they would allow them to add a Group B (chronic cervical patients) to the Phase 1 safety trial. The trial page shows they are still trying to recruit people. They're hoping to find out if these stem cells will cause any tumors to grow in humans or if they will be safe from that potential.

    The growth of spinal cord tumors varies significantly depending on the type of tumor. Benign tumors tend to grow very slowly (years), while others, such as gliomas, can grow very quickly (weeks to months).

    Quite often, primary spinal cord tumors grow very slowly and can even take years to cause symptoms. Secondary tumors that have spread from other parts of the body can grow very quickly and cause symptoms. Cancerous spinal cord tumors tend to be more aggressive, while noncancerous tumors grow more slowly.

    The spinal cord functions as part of the body's central nervous system, sending information from the brain to the rest of the body. When a spinal cord tumor develops, it presses on the spinal cord and adjacent nerves, breaking the line of communication. Treatment of spinal cord tumors depend on the age, health of the patient and whether or not the spinal cord tumor is cancerous. Spinal surgery and radiation therapy are two options.
