    Bioterrorism Research

    Thanks for the NIH Funding information re: SCI as it compares to other diseases. Does anyone know of a source of information for the amount of money spent on Bioterrorism Research?

    P.J. - Look on the NIH estimates sheet under Biodefense.

    do you have been to have more up to date facts on the cost of SCI per year? I found this but it isn't to current.

    " * SCI costs the nation more than $9.73 billion per year.
    * Each newly injured person with SCI incurs total first year costs that average $2.367 billion.
    * Annual SCI-related medical care costs average $1.624 billion per year.
    * Medications and supplies cost $449 million annually for those beyond their first year post-injury.
    * The average cost of personal assistance is estimated to be $2.068 billion for those who are beyond the first year post-injury. "

    CDRPA Passes House Committee

    The Christopher & Dana Reeve Paralysis Act (CDRPA) passed unanimously in the US House Energy & Commerce Committee moments ago. The only debate was if the $$'s currently attached to the bill ($25 million) was enough. This will be addressed at a later date.

    Now--onto the full House and Senate for consideration. Note: the Senate version (identical to House version) passed out of committee in late July. The bill will now be placed in the queue for scheduling.
