      Noirin is right. We should hurry up. There should be not just one but many clinical trials of the most promising therapies of chronic spinal cord injury.

      As you may know, we will be planning a trial of umbilical cord blood mononuclear cells and lithium treatment at Shriner's hospitals in Philadelphia for kids between ages 8 to 17. This is of course assuming that we show that the treatment is safe and that it restores some function in our current trials. I must continue to remind people that this is only the first case and we have 39 left to do (19 more in Hong Kong) and 20 in Kunming. We have a lot of work ahead of us and everybody is rolling their sleeves to get it done.

      Wise.
      Congratulations on starting the trials and great to know that there is something in the pipeline for kids as well - it makes it easier to keep Sean and Noirin training if there could be something for them in the future. Even better if they were still kids when the opportunity arises.

      • wise, good news on the Shriners; what about the trials in Texas. Can you give uptodate info those trials. All this is good news. what will make it even more good if we at sometime will be called to participate in real therapies.

They will be well versed in rehabilitation techniques through experience and are potential quick wins.
          someone wrote this in another thread. I thought it was something interesting to think about for quicker approvals.

              • Keeping on is right. All eyes in Dr Young.

                If everything goes well i m sure we all have some breaking news in coming few months regarding treatment.

                Rest other trials will be needing some years to give some news.

                • I'm sorry if my question was answered in the past but I'm curious what Wise's procedure will cost when it becomes available outside of clinical trials. Reason I ask is because I'm on medicaid and I don't see them paying for it.

                  I guess it will be "TBD" lol

                      • Buttabean, for what is worth; if a threapy becomes available, you can count on us to fight for your therapy.

                          lol i mean the procedure that Wise is performing in China. Is it relatively the same cost as a typical procedure or will it be astronomical cost. I'm just curious how many bottles I'll have to recycle
                          I have a feeling it will depend on the facility.
