    Survey on stem cell therapies for spinal cord injury

    I recently received a request to post this announcement. Wise.


    I am hoping that you might be able to help the Rick Hansen Institute – and hopefully all people with spinal cord injury or other disabilities – by taking a look at an important survey that is currently underway. They are inviting anyone with an opinion on stem cell therapy for spinal cord injury and related neurological disorders to take part and I would like to encourage you as well.

    You don’t have to sign up for anything and the survey does not collect “identifying information.” It sets out to gauge perception of this issue – for or against.

    If you have a few minutes to spare and would like to take part, it can be seen here:

    Thank you in advance,

    Duane Geddes, Executive Director
    Disability Foundation
    207 - 3077 Granville Street
    Vancouver, BC V6H 3J9

      Good Morming everyone; CNN this morning had two interesting segments on stem cells.
      1. Sanjay Gupta was highlighting areas where stem cells have or could be successful. Didn't mention spinal cord but did highlite the progress that is being made.

      2. Dhali Lama was interviewed by host and asked about stem cells. He professed goodness to the therapy and had no negative points. This is good as the rest of the world will continue to blossom in stem cell therapies. Hopefully the USA will follow.


        Wise, can you please explain some of the things the survey asks about, such as acceptable risk for potential tumor growth, etc?
