  • New cure

    I seen something on face book about a cure involving chemicals and an electrical implant. Does anyone else know about this?

      Gregoire Courtine and his research was the first I heard about right after getting injured which seemed impressive seeing them rats running. But now more than 3 years after and still no human trials. Wonder when

        Sit and wait I guess?

          I was told this by their COO yesterday

          Indeed, we are preparing a clinical study that should hopefully start sometime this year, once we will have received all approvals from competent authorities.
          Patients will be selected based on strict inclusion and exclusion criteria.
          I think they are starting with incompletes
          we will start the trials with less severe lesions, and eventually enroll patients with more severe lesions if early results are good enough to move on.

            This looks like Gregoire Courtine's lab's work in Switzerland. His lab is planning clinical trials in mid 2016. He is the protege of Reggie Edgerton, whose lab did all the epidural simulation on the 4 patients. I am also looking forward to this as it is the upgraded version of the epidural simulation.

                From what I've read, seen, it's not so much a cure but more of an implant to trigger movement controlled by a device rather than through control by the brain. More or less an implant to help recover from injury by initiating movement.

                  He has a website here:
                  http://courtine-lab.epfl.ch
                  http://gtherapeutics.com/

                  However I found this site to be the most interesting with short videos where he tells the whole story of what they did:

                            Long-term implantable devices

                            The e-Dura spinal cord implant.

                            St?phanie Lacour and Gr?goire Courtine, scientists at the ?cole Polytechnique F?d?rale de Lausanne's School of Engineering, announced in early 2015 that they had developed a new implant for treating spinal cord injuries. The small e-Dura device is implanted directly on the spinal cord underneath its protective membrane, called the dura mater. From there, it can deliver electrical and chemical stimulation during rehabilitation.
                            The device's elasticity and biocompatibility reduce the possibility of inflammation or tissue damage, meaning it could stay implanted for a long time. Paralyzed rats implanted with the device were able to walk after several weeks of training, the researchers reported in the journal Science.
                            Lu called e-Dura one of the best-functioning, long-term implantable flexible stimulators. "It shows the possibilities of using implantable, flexible devices for rehabilitation and treatment," she said.
                            Meanwhile, technologies that replicate human touch are growing increasingly sophisticated. Stanford University chemical engineering professor Zhenan Bao has spent years developing artificial skin that can sense pressure and temperature and heal itself. Her team's latest version contains a sensor array that can distinguish between pressure differences like a firm or limp handshake.
                            Lu said she and her colleagues in this highly multidisciplinary field hope to make all wafer-based electronics more epidermallike. "All those electronic components that used to be rigid and brittle now have a chance to become soft and stretchable," she said.

                              Dr. Silver shows on his video from Unite to Fight Paralysis in 2015 that his approach combination with Gregoire Courtine in Switzerland and another scientist Elizabeth Bradbury whom Dr. Silver says has the world's greatest chondroitinase, will all be combine to find out for the best possible outcome. They are all collaborating.
