  • E-Dura implant

    This looks very interesting. Says they are going to clinical trials and prepare and develop for commercialization. Anyone know anymore? GRAMMY?

    This was developed in France. I am not familiar with whast it may take to move from rats to a human clinical trial there.

        Debating on CareCure is like participating in the special-olympics. You may win, but you're still disabled.

          When they say electric impulses are they referring to something similar to the epidural stimulator that is already showing some promise in humans? And when they say pharmaceutical substances are they referring to stem cells or an enzyme like chondroitinase?

            Here's a LINK for the work of Gregorie Courtine and Susan Harkema (both students of Reggie Edgerton) posted last September in the blog.
            Courtine explained in great detail, the drug cocktail and electrical stimulation that are being built into this flexible implant now referred to as the "E-Dura". He reviewed the research and this invention at the annual Swiss Neuromodulation Meeting last year in this 30 minute video.

              Very interesting thanks I see the stimulation is pretty similar, if not the same. But I'm not entirely sure exactly what drugs they are using? Electrochemical neuroprosthesis. Sounds very promising though, looks like voluntary control.

                It was a serotonergic replacement therapy and agonist that were injected through the chemotrode. Subdural drug delivery through the chemotrode eliminated side effects of the serotonergic agents on the autonomic systems.
