    In a side by side comparison...decorin is really nothing like Chondroitinase ABC. As Dr. Young has stated previously...decorin is not a substitute for the Ch'ase enzyme. In addition, the Liz Bradbury lab in the UK is working with the Chondroitinase ABC enzyme delivery via a lentiviral vector, and of course there is the possibility of a CNS cell delivery option for uptake too from findings and work of the Fischer Lab at Drexel University.

    (decorin on the other hand is a small proteoglycan) In fact, I believe I've read about the 2 mixed together in combination and the Chondroitinase ABC enzyme actually broke down and degraded the decorin.

    Has anyone been to the lab, or personally spoken to Dr. Davies recently (2011-2012)? Is there any news at all? I know some of you used to keep in regular contact.
    Any news would be appreciated. Thank you.

    U think he definitely is trying hard, but doesnt seem to be getting the results hes been expecting. I hope im wrong but thats just my opinion.

    I wouldn't count anyone out at this point. No one has found a treatment yet.
