Subject: Hixon/Alcor

Thanks again to Hugh Hixon for further clarification.

So it now appears that the glycerol procedure outlined on the Alcor web site 
is indeed still their current standard, but only for whole body patients. 
Neuros now receive the neurovitrification procedure, with a CPA that is still 
secret, but believed to be much better--at least under ideal 
circumstances--so it is suggested that Alcor members who have chosen whole 
body may want to reconsider and change to neuro, at least for the time being.

Since, as I understand it, the majority of Alcor members and patients are 
already in the neuro category, Alcor's focus, at least for the present, will 
be on neuros.
