              Jim, I'm so sorry didn't see this to let you know I was coming. But I noticed someone recording and wonder if you might want to post any of the great night for others.

                lunasicc,

                Unfortunately, I missed the presentations by Dr's Blight and Kauffman and can't summarize.

                Randy, was good to see you.
                I would love to post video, who was recording?

                  Jim, it seemed there was someone to the right of the screen, behind Wise. Perhaps Patricia would know.

                    Can someone who was at the Summer Open House please share with the rest of us information that Dr. Young presented about the Clinical Trial.

                    Thanks

                    Roger

                      Roger,

                      8 of 20 patients have been completed in Hong Kong. They were having trouble finding 12 additional Hong Kong residents to be in the trial so they found a way to open it up to non-HK residents and the trial should resume soon.

                      The trial in China (at the Kunming Army Hospital) is ready to go. All 20 patients are approved and the hospital is completing the final test runs of cell importation from the US. IF everything goes as planned, the trial will be done in 2 months.

                      The reason I mentioned the ChinaSCINet trials is because we will use the safety data from these trials to apply to the FDA for approval to start the trials here. The first SCINetUSA trial will be at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin Texas. Dr. Young hopes to start at the end of '11/beginning of '12.
