Dating a man with a spinal cord injury
I look forward to providing more details on our proposed randomized controlled study in the second quarter of 2018”. More info about this trial on clinicaltrials.gov: NCT 02490501.
Selection criteria: -Single spinal cord lesion injury at the neurologic level between T2-T11. Or contact: Hans Basun, MD, 46734411798, [email protected] of the biggest issues preventing recovery after a chronic spinal cord injury is the scar that appears a few days or weeks after the injury and prevents any axon from growing away from the lesion area.
Judging by the increasing number of ongoing and planned clinical trials though, it seems that we might have come a bit closer to achieving a certain level of recovery.
The data displayed in the tabs in this page is far from exhaustive but is simply meant to give an idea of the momentum currently at play.
without any guarantee for results and including a certain level of risk taking.
However, the so-called Unproven/Commercial Therapies, often referred to as “medical tourism or stem-cell tourism” are even more experimental as they do not follow regulatory protocols nor do they provide any sort of transparency or scientific follow-up.
Depending on the location and severity of damage, the symptoms vary, from numbness to paralysis to incontinence.
Long term outcomes also ranges widely, from full recovery to permanent tetraplegia (also called quadriplegia) or paraplegia.
Unfortunately, as part of the decision to focus exclusively on INSPIRE, In Vivo announced the suspension of its chronic SCI stem cell study in July 2017.Should you however strongly desire to take that risk, we would advise you to prefer scientifically driven studies (called “clinical trials”) as mentioned in our website rather than the so-called unproven therapies advertised on the internet.A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes temporary or permanent changes in its function.their input and to Beverley Saunders and Barbara Carlile for their editing support.We have to be clear: there is still no cure, therapy or treatment for (chronic) spinal cord injury.
