      Wow Manouli,

      that's an awesome document you've unearthed - every time I read of the complexity of our injuries I shudder

      I notice a clinical trial network is a key recommendation of this document. Perhaps the China network will succeed and/or hopefully a US network is established.

      The Brisbane clinical trial seems to be happening in isolation which can't be good -

      The definition of a cure in the Executive Summary is "the ultimate goal of fully restoring to the individual the levels of activity and function he or she had before injury." A great goal but I thought we'd decided that owing to ageing that goal is not possible?

      However, later in the same chapter:

      "The urgent need to cure this devastating condition should not tempt overly optimistic predictions of recovery or to set time frames which can't be met."
