    2006

    WOULD IT BE REALISTIC TO SAY BY 2006 WE COULD GO SOMEWHERE AND GET ALMOST COMPLETELY CURED, (B&B, SEXUAL FUNCTION, ECT...??)

    Not from what I've read.

      Having this done by 2016 is extremely unrealistic.

        We may not be able to get a full cure, but we will be able to get something that is significantly better than our options are now. I think that 2005 will produce at least one human trial for something.

          I'm optimistic there will be much more progress by then.

                I believe by 2006 our options for a cure or for significant functional improved changes will be great, all over the world. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                  It won't be any different than the last 20 years. Big news one day and thats it, you know like the walking rats of years ago.
                  It seems like there is no end in sight.
                  I wish any current trials would show 100% proof of some return on a POST 10 YEAR+ sci, but there isn't. I think then you hear some say I got some muscle return back in my chest or I can breath better now, it really doesn't mean squat.
                  Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

                    Don't forget the south korean woman, 20 years post injury and now walking. I think it is very realistic that sometime in 2006 something very positive will happen!

                      Unfortunately this is the exact kind of BS story I'm talking about. If it where anything near a real cure she would never be up and walking in that short amount of time.
                      I did a stand pivet at 17 years and broke my femur.
                      You just don't get up and walk like that.

                        I have concluded the vast majority of SCI research is not application oriented; it's research oriented. Research begats more research, which begats more research, which. . . . .

                        Miami Project has studied Schwann cells for 18 years, still don't know many cells should be injected in a human spinal cord.

                        John McDonald cured rats in 1999, that was 6 years ago.

                        Dr. Xu at the Kentucky spinal cord center told me in 2003 that although they have successfully regenerated modest numbers of axons in the lab, he said don't exprct anything significant for 10 years.

                        Hans Kierstad at Reeve-Irvine has been showing videos of walking rats for 2 years now.

                        Mission connect in Houston stated if they could get a paralyized muscle group to "twitch" in the next ten years, this would be significant.

                        Questions about what and when have already been answered in Dr. Young's, "Ten frequently asked questions. . . ." topic. That's the best we have to go on.

                          Schmeky, the answer is well-designed clinical trials and funding for such trials. Wise.

                            Agreed Dr. Young. I realize such an undertaking is costly & complex.

                            Disheartening to read about advancements only to realize meaningful application is many many years away.

                              Funding = application = Cure.

                              The more funding the shorter the time frame.
