    Point taken, but intimidation seems to work well for many parts of the world.

      From my Iranian physician friend (who does not want to be identified):

      They have worked for years to grow Schwan cells and then have injected it into cord in mouse. Then they did this on humans. Unfortunately the rehab is not proper yet. If there is any improvement, without rehab, it will be lost. There are not specialty SCI rehab centers or beds anywhere in Iran. I hope that we can develop these so that with appropriate rehab they can improve lives of SCIs.

      I also believe that Iranians put high importance on scientific advancements. Sometimes this is politically motivated.

      The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

        KLD, rehabilitation in the US sucks big time.

        They are poorly equipped and mainly focus on transfer teaching, which isn't even an option for many quads.

        If rehab was so good in the US we wouldn't need places like Project Walk.

        I have better equipment at home than the Health South Rehab hospital had in Sarasote FL in 1997.

        Besides the physical therapists, though friendly, have no clue how to rehab neurological conditions.

        Give them a knee replacement or hip replacement patient and they are in their comfort zone.

            Hi all Iran sceptics , check this out. Btw. Are we all looking for a cure? Is it important which country will have a cure?

              Here is a Canadian Iranian stem cell researcher to contact. He is very much at the forefront of the cutting edge science of stem cell research:

              Feridoun Karimi-Busheri, Ph.D.
              A researcher at Cross Cancer Institute, Edmonton, Canada. Dr.Karimi-Bucheri is currently investigating "cancer stem cells" and "DNA repair pathways", is a member of Canadian Writer's Association (PEN), and regularly
              publishes short stories and literary critiques in Persian Magazines.

              Obviously Schwann cells aren't stem cells, but don't minimize iranian achievements just to boost US scientists' status.

                  Iran announces innovative new technique to repair spinal cord injuries~

                  Iranian scientist have developed a new technique for treating patients with spinal cord injury. In this method the Schwann cells are taken from the back of the patients leg (below the knee) and grown in the lab. They are then injected into the site of the injury.
                  Researchers from the Spinal Cord Injury Treatment Center of the Tehran University of Medical Sciences have scientifically proven the efficacy of the new method through 30 operations on humans.

                  "The degree of recovery is 85 percent in patients with partial paralysis, and 15 percent in patients with full paralysis", the director of the spinal cord injury research group, Hushang Saberi, said at the ceremony held to announce the Iranian scientists.

                  Thirty patients were chosen to undergo the surgery, 40 percent of whom experienced at least partial recovery as far as sensation and physical movement, with 35 percent showing no change, and 25 percent still in the initial post-surgical stage, he explained.

                  The government will pay, either directly or through insurance, for the treatment of any patient with spinal cord injuries who can not afford it, he stated.

                  Such transplantations are being practiced in Ukraine, China, which uses fetal and adult stem cells, and Russia, which uses dipolar nerve cells, but these techniques are risky, he added.

                    I couldn't find the working link for this one, but I think it's great that Iranian government invests so much in their spinal cord injuried individuals.
