      Hey Jim. This is indeed good news! It's been a while since I checked the site but I'm really glad that I did. Congratulations Wise and to everybody who helps him and supports him in any and every way. I have a question. My daughter is pregnant with what will probably be our last grandchild. Is there any benefit to us storing the umbilical cord blood for possibly using it for me? I don't know the science behind what is going on here, but at one time storing umbilical cord blood seem to be an option. My injury is C5/C6 complete. I was injured in late 1993. So, a big hello to everybody on this forum and those who support it in any way! It is all of you that give people like me hope of a brighter future! Looking forward to the results of these upcoming trials. Take care everybody!
      Here's Hoping!

          Hey Doug,

          The chances are, the cord blood won't be useful for your grand child's parents, or you. The great thing about umbilical cord blood is that it can be matched just like blood. I would bank it for your grandchild.

          Barrington, once the IRB's approve the clinical trial protocol, recruitmen will begin. I think we are still looking at a few months.

            Thank you Jim, I've been wondering where we are in the process.

                Nice article on a talk Dr. Young gave here: https://norcalsci.org/news/2019/4/21...ming-us-trials
                Not so much detail, but nice to know things are moving on.

                  Hi Jim, so does that mean it finally passed the FDA and now the final step before trial (no pun intended) is the IRB's? Thanks

                      Thank you for responding in Jim's behalf by copy/pasting links of posts that I have already read. I asked because before I had the impression that the FDA was the last obstacle to get the trials going. Learned now that we're waiting for the IRB approval, I asked JIM if there's any other approvals that are left pending or this is it for sure this time.

                        The clinical trial recruitment details and contact information are in the article at the bottom. Thank you for posting it for everyone to read.

                            There is always that risk in research.

                              Exactly right. I've read the usual calculation for potential participation loss is around the 20% mark. That varies from different types of trials and other factors but it used to be around that level for the average...

                                Will there ever be trials for Lumbar injuries?
