In the current ChinaSCINet phase 2 trial, patients with gunshot and other penetrating wounds of the spinal cord are not being excluded. We do exclude patients who have lesions that extend more than 2 segments (this is because we are injecting into the injury edges and don't want to do a laminectomy that is wider that 3 segments). Depending on the results of the phase 2 trial, penetrating causes of spinal cord injury may or may not be excluded from the phase 3 trial.
