Thread: More good news out of UCLA lab on restoring bladder function non-invasive after SCI

  1. #11
    The results from this study really peaked my interest, but the paper only talks about volitional urination and just talks about an improvement in SHIM score for sexual function.

    I asked Dr Lu about this, and if the subjects received any sensation for either functions.
    To my amazement he told me that they did. They could tell when their bladder was full and were not only getting voluntary erections - their sensation improved.

    To me improvements in sensation is far more important than the motor aspects of both of these.

    He is planning on doing a phase 2 trial with a larger amount of subjects and to fine tune the stimulation parameters.

    Fingers crossed that this could really be something for once.

    Sorry. I've been avoiding CareCure owing to all the political BS. Glad to see Niallel got the answer...$22k is less than a good, new power chair...
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.

    They have received a large amount of funding for the next stages of testing magnetic stimulation. Hopefully this will go somewhere as a company has been setup to bring it to market as well.

    Are these both women and men test subjects? Sorry, just curious.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    This was just the first report on 5 subjects in the pilot study.

    A total of 18 male/female, age18+, >1 year post (C2-T8, non-conus) injury with complete but stable severe motor paralysis(ASIA A, B) and catheterization dependent for urination will be enrolled.
