    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.

            what do they hope Riluzole will do for spinal cord injuries?
