    Ideally saying to Cast a wider net would be better, but are you basically saying that they just fucked their best bet off?

      The wider net was cast. Are YOU happy with the progress?

        Let's see. Well over billions of dollars spent after many decades, and no one can even wiggle a toe yet. And some believe we are nearly there.

        I wish it weren't so, but it is. I hope the next generation can at least benefit from acute forms of cascading secondary damage.

          the wider net has been Cast already? I agree that there is going to be a stemcells inc. Trial and a Neuralstem trial with the inclusion criteria very limited... That can't be attributed

            Neither Neuralstem nor StemCells Inc. are using that "wider net" (network of centers) that was cast for $7.9 million dollars (NACTN) where all these clinical trials were supposedly going to be tested. I agree with Paolo that maybe the money could be better spent by running a trial out of one center for chronics rather than plastering them all over for millions of dollars and getting nowhere. Acute therapies may need centers all over due to therapy being needed right away...but that doesn't do anything for the chronics that are still waiting for a therapy. The two situations are as different as night and day and tons of money have been wasted even looking at the "acute" situation so far...

                We need efficient, well planned clinical trials if we are ever going to get out of these chairs

                The people leading this research are intelligent enough, you'd think, to know how it should be done and when you read that millions of dollars and years are wasted on something it makes you weep - you just have to hope that lessons are learned

As has been expressed by more than one forum member, many of us would to feel really empowered to be consulted by our medical contacts to get involved with real therapies. In Britain we hear claptrap about scientific rigour, when the correct term for the attitude to sci is rigor mortis. So many doctors seem gob smacked that anyone should be interested in finding a cure.
                  Hi, why not simply contact the doctors then? They have offices, phone numbers and emails too
