    So that means if they get "ideal" candidates in between they won't be treated because 30 days isn't up?

      Yes. There is a 30 day hold between patients no matter how ideal. At a minimum this means 10 months but more likely a year to recruit all ten.

        Do you know what is the purpose of this rule?

        Thank you.
        Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

          Likely to try to spread the patients across the facilities that have invested in training for the protocols and the training of the surgeons. Also a measure to place a safety gap between patients in the rare event something unsafe appeared.

                          c473s,

                          The first group injected in July and that data is being analyzed right now, due to fda regulations no info can be shared. New CEO Gary Rabin was prodded by a caller to give an update on the patients that had been injected in July, Gary's answer was "love to talk about everything we've seen", but can't. That statement in itself says allot also if there had been any problems the trials would have been immediately stopped. The 6 weeks period is over for the first cohorts, hopefully they have had dramatic positive results.


                          The next site that was supposed to carry out the 2nd round of injections was to be at Oregon Health and Sciences University: Casey Eye. The Principal Investigator for Casey is Dr. Peter Francis, He has taken an unexpected leave of absence which has put trials there on hold. On a recent conference call new CEO Gary Rabin stated that this wouldn't be a problem as Jules Stien eye center could if need be, do All injections. ACT has had talks with other reputable eye clinics throughout the U.S. that have agreed to take part or are in talks to take part in these monumental trials.

                          ACTs NED HESC cell lines are pure and undifferentiated and i'm hoping once this company has the funding that they can then focus on the cns and sci.

                                I was referencing spinal cord trials not the eye trials. Thanks
