Hi Barbara: Interested in finding out if there are any Drs. treating or pursuing treatments for Transverse Myelitis. I had a single episode back in 2009. I was told that it occurred secondary to a strep infection in my spinal cord, actually had 3 different strains of strep in spinal fluid. Lesion is C6 incomplete. Very rare disease and I haven't had much luck finding a clinic familiar with it. Thanks so much! Tim
Thank you so much, Barbara. I appreciate all of your great effort, especially the coordination with the doctors, and your editing of the questions!
Sincerely,
Mike
Cburg - The next host (August) will be discussing cell banking. Your question on SDF-1 was addressed by Dr. Walpole this month. You can find the current Ask the Doctor in the Spotlight section. I will hold onto your info on the ultrasound until we have a doctor host.
Dear Barbara,
I have found yet another very interesting method for stem cell delilvery: “Kidney-Targeted Transplantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Ultrasound-Targeted Microbubble Destruction”

Thank you very much!
