    Thank you, manouli. This is fantastic! I believe that every stem cell trial will yield information that will benefit another stem cell trial. Although this process is agonizingly slow due to medical setbacks & funding and political issues, every sucess will gradually add steam to the development of viable treatments for a wide range of diseases and disorders. We all just want it now! All we need is one big breakthrough, good results, and lots of positive publicity!

      Thank you Manouli! Missed this even on the news and I have a cousin with PPMS.
