      Indeed, being listed on clinical trials does tend to give one credibility.
      Well, it's a yes and no. The clinical trial site has always been just a general clearing house of trials. Technically, the US government hasn't gotten these dubious stem cell clinics shut down that have sprang up by the hundreds for profit. It's not surprising they would be running "trials" in order meet at least part of the ongoing regulations. Any company can shill their own product. If you don't read Paul Knoepfler at The Niche from UC Davis, you should be. https://ipscell.com/ Here's a little bit about Paul. LINK

      Last month I sorted through just short of 900 SCI listed clinical trials there to update the chart at u2fp. Seriously, if there were 900 fantastic worthy trials going on, wouldn't we have a cure or legitimate therapy by now? Holy smokes!

      Dr. Lammertese from Craig Hospital maintains the SCOPE trial site and I maintain the one for u2fp web site. People really need to be cautious and fully study the trials, the treatments being tested and know their risks. They must be committed to educating themselves and being responsible with questioning and gathering their information. There is no free ride. There is no valid treatment on the open market.

      Learn, learn, learn has always been my motto. That is your only safety net.

        The article has Video S1 - Improvement in walking after cell therapy.

        Impressive improvement. This treatment delivery being the same as done by Cell Medicine (Panama) or Beike (Thailand/China).
        I honestly didn't recognize any difference in the walking videos... So that person was already a walker beforehand, is that correct... Im asking this in a flat, genuinely inquisitive manner... What is 'impressive' about the videos exactly

          So at this point I guess the only hucksters I'd be tempted to pay money would be those that replicated the Miami Schwann cells treatments...not that those exist.

            @lunasicc42 , impressive if have similar spasticity limiting his walking that are relieved after lumbar puncture bone-marrow stem cells. That means sensory gains that improve blood pressure/temp/relaxation & contraction. An option for cervical SCI that due to phrenic nerve proximity, is too dangerous to get direct injections of cells.

                some hope?

                  I thought the latest update was its approved for Spanish citizens, but it’s only provided at one hospital and they have a 3+ year wait.

                    Oh wow didn’t know that! It sucks that it’s for Spanish people only and the waiting times are horrendous, but what if they sort of copy the method and export it to other countries? Could that be possible? Or is there some patent thing going on? I have no idea what I’m talking about

                      Dam patents... just crossed my mind that the intellectual property may not even be owned by the researcher himself if he's on a biotech/organization/hospital/university's payroll.... meaning that if a researcher found a cure, by law he cannot give it without permission, crazy isn't it?

                        Actually I had a look, and it seems that medical procedures cannot be patented in the majority of countries, including the US Europe. See here: http://www.mondaq.com/india/x/311404...ts+An+Overview

                        and it makes sense if you think about it, cause doctors have to have the best interest of their patients at heart. That’s good!

                                Any news that when this therapy is available publicly in Spain for patients all around the world? Will this work in all injury levels?
