    I met Dr. Arvanian back at W2W 2013, and maintained contact with him for a while after that. He was hoping to do some human work at the facility where I worked, but the VA didn't approve it being done. It was one of the many frustrations I had that led me to pursuing my own PhD. He has an impressive body of scientific work and he is definitely in it to cure SCI more than anything else.
    invalid, given that you seem to be a good judge of character, since you got that impression of Dr. Arvanian, where does the hostility towards Dr. Young come from? When have you met and spoke with him in person? What evidence do you actually have that he doesn't "just do things for sci population with sincere wish to see the results." You don't think Dr. Young is in this to help people? Why? I visited his lab and spoke with him more times than I can count, and my experience was always similar to what Moe described. To say he is a "dealer more than a laboratory man" and a "cheater", and to imply that he is not in it to cure SCI above all else is unfair and as far as I can see, completely unfounded.

      Dr. Arvanian is listed on page 6 under the SCIRP Continuum of Care in the Acute SCI Treatment category. LINK

      Here is the CDMRP video LINK. This is the video posted from 2 years ago that was taken at Working 2 Walk by Unite 2 Fight Paralysis for anyone interested in his work. LINK

        Grammy--first, thank you for your hard work and informative posts. Very helpful. In your continuous research, have you come across any work about glial scar tissue dissolving without surgery other than Jerry Silver's work? Read about the nogo protein and when or how long before it quits making scar tissue?

          You're welcomed 6 Shooter. Yes, there are several labs that have recently identified chemical compounds that can potentially work to control glial scar "CSPG" other than Chondroitinase aka (Ch'ase) and Intercellular Sigma Peptide aka (ISP). There's lots of work in this area of research. I'll look up some links and post them here in the next few days for you to read about. Some of these are quite interesting! I'll add them to this post as I have time to link them.
