    You add nothing, give hope to nothing,
    inform no one, promulgate nothing
    but your own negativity.

    PS, next time you need your alter-ego to
    chime in support, make sure you both don't mispell my name the exact same way.

    Tool.

      WTF? 8 years? Explain that to those of us who have been injured and are healthy 20+ years later. What a joke!

        It is absolutely true. The person that made the comment is totally full of it.

          According to the official figures ( Found Here - scroll to bottom of page), there does appear to be a relationship between level of injury and how long one is expected to live.

          "Life expectancy is the average remaining years of life for an individual. Life expectancies for persons with SCI continue to increase, but are still somewhat below life expectancies for those with no spinal cord injury. Mortality rates are significantly higher during the first year after injury than during subsequent years, particularly for severely injured persons."
          "Oh yeah life goes on
          Long after the thrill of livin is gone"

            With all due respect to all the CC members, could we get back to the original focus of this topic?

            Does anyone feel that significant progress toward meaningful human trials will take place in 2005?

            We really need a pivotal year.

                  i told you yes. second generation will start this year. second generation will evenually yield a lot of function in the chronic injury.

                      That's good enough for me.
                      Even without specific dates,
                      I consider that something to be pretty damn
                      stoked about.

                      Like I said before,
                      lets get everyone in there
                      to get their breathing, arms and
                      hands back. Then a party!
                      We'll have another bash
                      when when can all go dancing!

                        it means the first person treated with second generation will most likely have less return than the 500th person.

                          DA,

                          Second generation will be combinations. Combinations no one has proven, yet. When they are proven, gotta be replicated. MP's stuff, for example, not replicated, yet.

                          To start in 2005 means somebody is way past the lab rat stage, means their results have been published, ain't seen no results.

                                it means after the first clinicians will improve the therapies. a little more here, a little less there, B before A, A before C. improving the therapy until its a full cure for some.
