    for them, chronic ends after 60 months. I wonder why?

    Inclusion Criteria:
    1. Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury.
    2. Male or female subjects aged between 18 and 65 years.
    3. BMI ≤35 and body weight ≤125 kg at Screening.
    4. Complete SCI (ASIA Impairment Scale level A, no voluntary bladder function, negative motor and sensory evoked potentials).
    5. A single spinal cord lesion injury at the neurologic level between T2-T11.
    6. A Baseline MRI that indicates a pathology consistent with a traumatic SCI
    7. Minimum of 4 months and maximum 60 months post injury with no evidence of neurological improvement prior to implantation surgery unless there is a complete anatomical cut-off of the spinal cord.
    8. Females must not be lactating or pregnant at Screening and Baseline (as documented by pregnancy tests).
    This is just my speculation but possibly because they realize the amount of damage that will be done to the body after five years of complete paralysis! Especially complications that happened at the injury site or below overtime like spinal atrophy, myelomalacia etc

                Surely its better that they tried and failed, rather than didn't try at all.

                  I had some serious concerns about this anyway, as I'm sure is true of most of you. This is a once-and-done deal to me. And if one is incomplete, as I am, consenting to this kind of approach is dangerous. I wonder what has happened to those in the trial. It certainly doesn't sound positive.

                  As niallel said, it's better to try, but one definitely should perform a risk assessment himself/herself (and not just rely on doctors) before doing something like this. For example, was this done on mice only? What about primates, and what was the success rate? We're talking about removing an entire section of the cord....
