        Team Fight to Walk and United 2 Fight Paralysis ... pretty darn similar names! So politicians have results from China that haven't been published yet?

          Please, sir. Can I have some more? - Oliver Twist.


          That's an awesome link but it mentions there might be a "wait," even if they get the green light... I wish I could do something to make it happen today. If only I was a billionaire... funnily enough they/we only need millions and is doable. If we had aomething like the ice bucket challenge to get the hype and trend train rolling.

            Jim posted a couple months ago about this and sounded pretty confident that it would be happening in the US THIS year.

              The timeline is continually moving due to many, many factors. I try to do my best to keep you all up to date, but don't always know the most recent goings on, and can't share some details. These are the first clinical trials I have observed from the sidelines, and man is it tough, especially bringing a therapy from China.

              The paper is on track to be published this year, creation of the IND application for US FDA is underway. I'm told it will be in the neighborhood of 10,000 pages. Big pharma have separate departments to accomplish this, we don't have that luxury. Start date of the US trial depends on when the paper is published, FDA approval is granted, and funding. Everything possible is being done to make this happen yesterday, hang in there.

                Jim,
                Not trying to come off as a dick head here. But does Wise now believe it wasn't worth going to china first. It seems that is what has slowed the process down.

                  ASIA A chronics walking, return of bowel and bladder, and growth across the injury site . How can that not be worth it? ChinaSCINet has completed 6 clinical trials for $2 million, it is unprecedented.

                      Sorry Jim that's not what I meant. I was asking if he would be further along with trials I[f he would have just stayed in the states and conducted his trials. I am happy about the results.

                        In US would've probably take a lot longer because of the higher costs

                          Ok, got ya.

                          I'm not sure how much further along we would be. The next step in the US would have been large animal studies, which are very expensive and time consuming. In addition to that, funding would have been a major hurdle. Cost in U.S. is estimated to be 150K per patient compared to under 20K in China, even less in India. I believe the establishment of ChinaSCINet and now IndiaSCINet is critical to discovering the 'cure' as fast as possible. We are about to see a race to the cure. Hopefully the US can keep up.
