Someone has asked that same question every few months for a decade.

Any update on Dr atala progress ? @Herbert West @smalljay @Reklaw 
 

 

Here's a part of conversation between the administrator and owner of "Peyronie's Disease society forum" and Wake Forest's secretary which was approx 3 months ago.

 

Q: Does WFIRM have an approximate timeline with deadlines for the whole trial? Can you estimate when you will begin phase-2 and phase-3 and when you will be completely finished with this?   How many years will it take for all of the tests, trials, and approvals before this technology finally will be available in clinical practice? What is the most optimistic hope for availability to the patient (5 years, 10 years, 20 years)?  (We ask because men are actually delaying implant and other surgeries in the hope that this will become available as a better solution.)

A: NO WE DO NOT HAVE A TIMELINE. IT MAY TAKE UP TO 5 YEARS TO COMPLETE THE PHASE 1 WITH THE 3 YEAR FOLLOWUP INCLUDED.  WE PLAN TO SUBMIT THE PHASE 2 TO THE FDA PRIOR TO THE COMPLETION OF ALL THE FOLLOW-UP.  ANY FUTURE STUDIES WILL BE MULTICENTER SO THAT ENROLLMENT MAY BE QUICKER

 

In short: nothing will happen in the next 20 years.
