Man With Severed Spinal Cord Walks Again After Cell Transplant

"A man paralyzed for two years is now walking again, albeit with a frame, after a transplant to his spine. The treatment, to be published in this month’s Cell Transplantation, has been under discussion for a while, but has only now shown success.

In 2010, Darek Fidyka was repeatedly stabbed, rendering him paralyzed from the chest down. Fortunately, however, his nose was unscathed.

Olfactory ensheathing glia (OEGs) surround olfactory axons, the nerve fibers that conduct electrical charges from the nose to the brain to allow us to smell. What makes them of interest to spinal patients is that OEGs maintain their capacity to promote new neurons into adulthood.”

An old picture, but this was one of our little hens who snuck into the garage via a cracked window to make her nest in a tin full of tiny bags of screws and nails.  We moved her and her eggs to a plastic tub on our porch where she hatched out her little ones amongst the hardware.


In a twisted way, both Kaneki Ken and Takizawa Seidou have become the new hound of a top hunter. Sasaki Haise follows Arima, while OWL obeys Eto.

Aogiri and CCG are two fractions at war : they’re using the same tool (an artificial OEG from Kanou) but they have a different approach as to how to keep their respective dog on a tight leash. 

* AOGIRI (theory) : Break to rebuilt as you please. 

Bonds of fear, hurt, starvation, physical and mental torture. Though we have yet to know what has excately happened to Takizawa during the timeskip, it is quite possible Seidou was under the care of Tatara, Naki, and Kanou which could explain how the man became OWL (psychotic, violent, somehow detached from his environment, white hair, etc). 

* CCG (theory) : Tie down with feelings. 

Create several bonds strong enough to keep Kaneki. Those bonds are Haise’s relationship with the Quinx, Akira, Arima, Suzuya. “Haise Sasaki” is the first prison: there is no one more blind than he who does not wish to see. Haise has learnt to fear his past self (Ken). In order to feel safe, Sasaki would try and tighten his grip on the present aka CCG comrades. Forced or not, amnesia does help keeping Ken as an useful agent.

So here, I'm reading the profiles of the clowns, then I remembered that Nico mentioned about the One Eyed King, he told Souta that there is no OEK. And then I got to the profile of Arima.a question suddenly pops in my mind. What do you think of Arima being the one eyed king, or if not the king, then as a one eyed ghoul? (I know that every hint given for the identity of the OEK points out to Eto.. But..but..)

(It has been like a month that I’ve received this ask but I’m finally going to answer this. :x)

Warning: This is going to be a really long post because I thought that the topic mentioned was rather interesting (and also because I have no idea how to cut my answer shorter).

While the main question was whether Arima could be a One-Eyed Ghoul (OEG) or OEK, I think we should also discuss why Nico told Souta the OEK doesn’t exist and if Eto = OEK (since they are related, sort of).

  1. Why Nico told Souta there’s no OEK
  2. Eto =/= OEK
  3. Arima as a ghoul
  4. Arima as OEK

(Some theories listed may sound ridiculous, but I’ll put them here anyway as long as there’s a possibility.)

anonymous asked:

In the OEG fruit salad, wouldn't Amon be 'peach' because of the Momotaro omake? (Taking it as given that Amon is a OEG).


Haise = banana
Seidou = pineapple
Amon = peach
Ishida-sensei = watermelon

You’re onto something anon.

If Arima is the OEK

Arima ( Tokyo Ghoul Jack) :* eating something with the depressants*

thinking: Ha! finally a solution! Now I can  join the CCG, they won’t know my true nature.

-10 years later-

Arima( Tokyo Ghoul:re): *trying to eat something with the depressant, shaking.*

thinking: Okay, my rc levels are going up again, I might not digest this. Haise please don’t notice this.

*Goes to the bathroom and vomits*  

Haise(Tokyo Ghoul): *knocks* Hey, you okay?

Kaneki( Tokyo Ghoul, in Haise’s mind): Lol hes a OEG  too!

Haise : SHUT UP!

anonymous asked:

What if Arima is the real one eyed king...AHAHA *coughcough*

Not so sure about him being the OEK but I do have theories of him being an OEG.

anonymous asked:

Maybe hide is a half ghoul too cause he didnt even die when nishiki kicked him and stepped on him a few tjmes

I kinda doubt that Hide’s an OEG tho. I think he’s human.
