      • Another interesting trial: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/213693.php; seems to br getting a lot of attention lately; osteoperosis treatments using stem cells and the ;ike. Most of us know people who are suffering from this and one day , if not now, we too will experience this. Wish them all the luck in the world and may it lead to a treatment within the 5 year time frame.

        • I understand the frustration of waiting but I think it would prudent to wait until results are at hand and when they are reasonable shore of the results positive or negative from Dr Wise and team, who I think will keep us informed from their busy schedule to correspond the results on the forum

          I know its hard but keep cool

          • Lots of answers:

            Safety and Feasibility of Umbilical Cord Blood Cell Transplant Into Injured Spinal Cord


            Primary Outcome Measures:
            • ASIA motor scores and sensory scores [ Time Frame: 0, 1, 2, 6 24 and 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
            • ASIA Impairment Scale grade [ Time Frame: 0, 1, 2, 6 24 and 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
            This is an open-label, dose-escalating clinical trial. Three groups of four patients will receive transplants of increasing doses of HLA-matched umbilical cord blood mononuclear cell into the spinal cord. In the fourth group, we will transplant the highest volume of cells that did not increase neurological deficits along with a single bolus of 30mg/kg methylprednisolone sodium succinate. In the fifth group of four subjects, we will inject that volume of cells plus a bolus intravenous dose of 30mg/kg methylprednisolone sodium succinate and a 6-week course of oral lithium carbonate titrated to 0.6-1.0 mM serum levels. All the subjects are encouraged to stand or walk for one hour a day after the cell transplantation.

            The neurological and walking outcomes will be assessed 1, 2, 6, 24 and 48 weeks after transplantation. The outcomes of the five treatment groups will be compared by analysis of variance and, if possible, correlation with cell dose. Efficacy and safety will be analyzed comparing neurological change scores amongst the five different treatment groups. Loss of motor (>5 points) or sensor scores (>2 points) from baseline pre-treatment levels would be considered deleterious. Increases in scores above baseline would be considered beneficial.

            • On December 21st, my E.N.T. finally told me we can go ahead w/ the surgery to remove my t-tube trachea, Best news I had heard all year. Now I find this thread, and my excitement, hope, and faith are huge...like everyone else has said b4 me this year will provide good news us.

              Living in New york and in a Nursing home/Rehabilitation center while you wait for your home to be accommodated or wait for an apartment, is extremely hard and can get depressing even. Especially when they tell you " there's nothing more we can do for you, as a quad your not going to recover anymore function or get stronger..." they cut you off therapy including exercise programs for maintaining what you do have, regardless of what your doctor (one of NY top Psychiatrist) recommends. But in august 2010 after the July open house at Rutgers with Dr. Young, I showed them the ScinetUSA website, along with the requirements to participate in the trials, since then they have been standing me on a tilt table 3x's a week for at least an 1hr and 20minutes, and resumed physical and occupational therapy so that when the time comes I can be an eligible candidate to help in the trials.

              Keep Up the Amazing Work Dr. Young, and please tell us if we need to do anything further to prepare and or qualify to participate in the trials
              I do like Johnny Walker says and Keep Walking

                  • Hi Tritro 2058; I live in New York not to far from Westchester County. I go to a Project Walk accredited facility in Riverdale NJ called Push to Walk. It can be a hike sometimes but well worth it to help keep you in shape.

                    • Congrats on getting the trach removed tritro.

                      Do you have a tentative date when your house will be ready?

                      Stay strong and keep up the fight!

                      • thanks keeping on, ima need it I was just told their going to d/c my PT specifically the standing part which to me is the most important cause I dont get any mat work :/

                        hey Lepups; I'm from WC but living in a Bronx nursing/rehab home would you mind sending me a pm with more info on push to walk, I'm definitely willing to go the extra mile.

                        hey Jim; Thank you this was a long wait... so feb 17th they begin the process to remove it. As far as the house is concerned no date, I have an agency helping fund the cost so they do their routines. sent a architect to look around and whatever else they do, now I believe they bid between 3 contractors so who knows.
                        It would be easier and my family wants to sell but the market/economy

                        Anyway thanks for the support, keep on fighting

                            • Thank you keeping on.

                              Well my trust has increased more and more in Dr Young now.

                              No one is as dedicated as Young is for us.

                              Really do pray that God give him success and this year prove to be the year of history.

                              Best of luck Dr Young and God bless you.

                              Keeping on you are simply so energetic and sweet person. God bless you too.

                                I believe Dr. Young has been fighting this fight longer than any of us. I ask anyone how we can give up or even slow down, it is the fight inside our human bodies that dicctate this world. One Heart beat, one mind, one soul, Togetheer we can do all things! I will walk, I will regain function in my hands, this feeling I have of emptyness and sorrow will be destroyed by my persistence and unwaivering desire to NEVER give in.
                                This trophy goes to Wise regardless of victory or defeat. It is the fight that you will remeber, so fight like hell or you will regret all this.
                                God is good
