    Miami Project Breakthrough?

    I just got an e-mail from the Miami Project saying that they made a 'Game Changing Breakthrough' for SCI with a small Molecule drug but no specifics were given ...anyone got any info?


    "This is something that has never been done anywhere in the world!

    This discovery is potentially a game changer and significant breakthrough in developing new treatments to regenerate axons and restore functional recovery in paralyzed individuals. Because of this simultaneous engagement, our scientists were able to see a more robust growth of axons than anything they have seen before!

    Our goal is to advance this research into a new Phase I clinical trial. If successful, this drug has the potential to also treat age-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease."

    Thanks for posting. Is there a link to read more about it?

      No, thats what I was asking too. The announcement e-mail from The Miami Project included no details, It just said 'That' up there

        Every once in a while they do this, remaining purposely vague. It generates attention and donations. Many times previously it turns out to be the transacted-walking-rat-trick, again.
        As Morgan Freeman’s character said, “Hope can be a very dangerous thing”.
        But let’s hope anyway.

          Getting mailers to send in my donation. Getting emails. Seeing ads. This is just a money grab.

            I e-mailed them and got a response this morning, it said that this is the work about to come to fruition: Dr. Hassan Al-Ali, On the Edge of Discovery - The Miami Project

              Hopefully it's for CHRONIC SCI!!!

                yeah, I know what you mean but for my own Sanity I like to keep my pessimism/optimism levels pretty even just to purposely keep some sanity...it always was like a safeguard to not allow me to get into depression...I mean, logically it has to come to fruition sometime right? Even if the conspiracies about the medical field not really wanting us cured are true; there also has to be some legit stuff

                  Hey, I'm game. Not planning to lose hope until they put me in the ground, so I reckon I've got at least a couple of good years left to hope!

                      So they're joining Nervgen, RenetX, Axonis and others by creating their own regenerative molecular cocktail. Looks like stem cell research is fading and molecules is the new game in sci research.

                      My head will be racing by lunchtime"

                        Out of the companies you mentioned there... Does anyone have thoughts on who might be most likely to produce something for the clinic...?

                            I kinda thought Nervgen might have shown a bit more functional return, at least in a chronic rat model. Dr. Silver said that in rats results were better the longer the rat had been injured. Remember they had a batch of injured (contused) rats that they forgot about.

                            Nervgen / Dr. Silver cocktail showed positive returns in b&b and walking, in RAT models.

                            RenetX emphasis seems to be in hand, arm recovery ........ hopefully they're being conservative in what they hope to achieve.

                            Obviously if any of the molecules(cocktails) really show regeneration then who knows what limb or function(s) be return.

                            Seems that there could literally be millions of different variations of these molecular cocktails. I hope they discover the optimal recipe sooner the better.

                            Speaking of HOPE. I've been injured for 31 years and get down sometimes but haven't given up. Hypothetically this would be perfect therapy, a simple series of injections.

                            This molecular research will work or it won't. Its the "cure" we've waited for or it isn't! I'm just glad we have something to throw against the wall to see if it sticks.

                              I hope they all work.

                              Please correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like NervGen's NVG-291-R is less invasive than Renetx's Axar-204. From what I read, NVG-291 crosses the blood brain barrier and can be injected into any soft issue (i.e.muscle) whereas Axar-204 needs to be injected into the spinal fluid.

                              Either way a treatment for chronic SCI injuries would be beyond belief.
