    Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan Is the First Midwest Rehabilitation Hospital to Participate in Proneuron's Clinical Research Trial for Spinal Cord Injury

    DETROIT & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 16, 2004--Proneuron Biotechnologies (www.proneuron.com) and the Detroit Medical Center's Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) (www.RIMrehab.org) announced today that RIM will participate as the first Midwest rehabilitation center in Proneuron's international, multi-center, randomized-controlled Phase II study of ProCord, an experimental procedure for acute spinal cord injury (SCI).


    Assisting RIM in screening spinal cord injury patients for this experimental procedure is Detroit Receiving Hospital, a national leader in trauma and emergency medicine. This unique partnership between an expert trauma center and a leading rehabilitation facility allows for efficient and continuous care of persons with spinal cord injuries.

    "As a leader in the spinal cord injury community for more than 50 years, we have been following Proneuron's research with great interest. We are excited to be involved in the second phase of this study and contributing to further advancements in SCI research," said Terry Reiley, President, Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan.

    Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan is one of the nation's largest hospitals specializing in rehabilitation medicine and research. As southeast Michigan's only rehabilitation hospital, RIM treats more spinal cord injury patients than any hospital in the state, including the most complex cases. Recently, RIM opened its Center for Spinal Cord Injury Recovery (www.centerforscirecovery.org), a world-class facility designed to implement and study the results of innovative treatments that may result in some level of improvement in persons with injured or damaged spinal cords.
