    Along with its biocompatible polymer scaffold device, which the company plans to move into a clinical study in the second half of this year, InVivo is developing its novel hydrogel technology as a treatment for SCI. Both technologies focus on protection of the spinal cord and prevention of secondary injury, an approach which, unlike any currently available treatment, is designed to address the underlying pathology of a SCI.
    It's slightly ambiguous whether this is intended for acute or chronic injuries - or are they suggesting both?

    Dr. Young, you've stated elsewhere that there are no studies confirming any negative side effects for the current delivery of methylprednisolone - do you see this as potentially more beneficial?
