Stem cell therapy for spinal cord injuries:

British scientist John B. Gurdon

PowerPoint Presentation:

Spinal cord injury became the first condition targeted in a human clinical trial using cells made from embryonic stem cells begun by Geron in 2010 later cancelled for financial reasons.

Geron Stem Cell Therapy:

GRNOPC1 Improves Locomotor Behavior after Spinal Cord Injury:

GRNOPC1 Improves Locomotor Behavior after Spinal Cord Injury Tom Okarma - Geron

PowerPoint Presentation:

GRNOPC1 – contains oligodendrocyte progenitor cells. Which turn into oligodendrocytes , If GRNOPC1 works, the progenitor cells will produce new oligodendrocytes in the injured area of the patient's spine, potentially allowing for new movement.

Treatment of chronic spinal cord injured patients with autologous bone marrow-derived hematopoietic stem cell transplantation:

Treatment of chronic spinal cord injured patients with autologous bone marrow-derived hematopoietic stem cell transplantation Cairo University conducted human trial of hematopoietic progenitor stem cells in SCI Patients Results: Improved functions Not FDA approved MRI showed no tumors Awaiting 1 year follow up

Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Based Therapy:

GRNOP1 Phase 1 Multi-Center Spinal Cord Injury Trial:

GRNOP1 Phase 1 Multi-Center Spinal Cord Injury Trial Tom Okarma - Geron

PowerPoint Presentation:

injected into the patients' spines 1-2weeks after injury between their third and 10th thoracic vertebrae, or roughly the middle to upper back. Later trials would include patients with less severe spinal injuries and damage to other parts of the spine. In lab animals, the results were dramatic - paralyzed rodents moved again.

Science is discovering the unknown:

Science is discovering the unknown Stem cell field is still in its infancy Human embryonic stem cell research is a decade old, adult stem cell research has 30-year head start Holds hope for curing or improving treatments for 70+ diseases

Should we do it???:

Should we do it???

PowerPoint Presentation:

Traditional Chinese herbal medicines an ancient medicinal practice, called Ji -Sui-Kang ( JSK ), can improve  locomotor function  in rats with spinal cord injuries .
