    U.S. military supports spinal cord injury research

    Published: May 29, 2013 at 11:38 AM
    HOUSTON, May 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Department of Defense has given a $2 million grant to support research into treatment for spinal cord injuries.

    The two-year, peer-reviewed grant was given to The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and Capstone National Partners. The funding will support the Reeve Foundation's North American Clinical Trials Network, a consortium of university hospital neurosurgical and neuro-rehabilitation teams.

    "The Reeve Foundation said the grant will support a Phase 2/3 efficacy trial of Riluzole, a neuro-protective drug that is the only FDA-approved drug used in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis."

    Seems the grant is completely irrelevant to everyone on this board.
