Walking Towards a Cure

Walking Towards a Cure

A good news for Chronic Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) cure is coming from Stem Cells Inc.

“StemCells, Inc.(Nasdaq:STEM) today announced that the twelve month data from the first patient cohort in the Company’s Phase I/II clinical trial of its proprietary HuCNS-SC® product candidate (purified human neural stem cells) for chronic spinal cord injury continued to demonstrate a favorable safety profile, and showed that the considerable gains in sensory function observed in two of the three patients at the six-month assessment have persisted.”(1)

This is a first step but it is showing all of us that our dreams for a cure may become a reality!

“While we need to be cautious when interpreting data from a small, uncontrolled trial, to our knowledge, this is the first time a patient with a complete spinal cord injury has been converted to a patient with an incomplete injury following transplantation of neural stem cells. We are encouraged that the cells appear to convey clinical benefit in such severely injured patients.” (2)

As we can see, a cure is possible and that is why we, Cure Girls, are strongly fighting for it!
