    I'm guessing that's this Clinical Trail https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/...&draw=2&rank=2

    Mayo Clinic Adipose Stem Cells for Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury

    Thanks for sharing.

    Does anyone know why this phase I trial takes 7 years? Are all stem cell trials taking this long? Do phase II and III also take 7 years each?

    Not sure about 7 years. My understanding is this is a 96 week trial. I had some extensive discussions with the team earlier this year in hopes of becoming number 10 on the trial, but unfortunately was rejected due to one of the exclusion criteria. We were very clear about this being a 96 week trial.

    Ah so it really was for patients who were 1 year out only. I never got a definitive answer from them about the length of injury.
