    Is it true that through IV or spinal fluid injection stem cells dont reach injury site in chronic injuries than direct injections at injury site in and around? What is the best method to go with?
    Are lumbar injuries hard to treat than cervical and thoracic injuries or may be easier?
    Sorry it is

    Nice layout of the phases of trials, fti.

    Dear Patrick,

    I am contacting you with regard to your interest in the Nogo-A antibody therapy in spinal cord injured patients.

    We performed a phase I safety study which was completed in 2011. You will find more information about this study at:

    We plan to perform a multicenter European clinical phase II study and are currently applying for funding resources. If we receive the resources the study might start at the end of 2015. In the planned study only fresh spinal cord injuries (1-2 months after injury) will be addressed, because we assume that the treatment is most efficient in these patients.

    Let me know in case you should have any additional questions.

    Kind regards,
    Christina Sina
