Dr. Laurance Johnston says he understands. Johnston is the director of Paralyzed Veterans of America and a regular contributor to Paraplegia News. He travels the world seeking out SCI treatments. Johnston strongly supports Shroff's embryonic stem cell therapy.
Johnston says billions of dollars are directed worldwide to tap into the embryonic stem cell's power. The huge profit potential leads him to believe that a diminutive Delhi clinic is likely to be dismissed rather than embraced by people with conflicting personal and economical interests.
"History shows us scientific breakthroughs are frequently generated by innovators outside of the system," he says. "Innovators not shackled to prevailing ideas or bound to prestigious biomedical institutions."
Johnston traveled to Delhi, becoming the first American scientist to visit Shroff's clinic and says he is confident her clinic - and her claims - are legitimate.
The major breakthrough, according to Johnston, is how Shroff obtains her embryonic stem cells.
Johnston did not see it in detail.
"I am excited about its potential and suspect it will ultimately represent a big step toward the promised land of restored function," says Johnston.
