The Intensive Rehabilitation Trial funded by PCSRF will begin in early 2021 and is the next step towards finding a cure for paralysis.
Our goal is to conduct a Human Clinical Trial as part of the Spinal Injury Project and restore movement in people suffering with paralysis. However, before we can do this, we need to prepare the body to move again through intensive rehabilitation. Without long-term activity-based rehabilitation, cell transplantation alone will not be successful. This is why our Intensive Rehabilitation Trial is the next step in finding a cure for paralysis.
Through the generous donations of funding partners, philanthropists and our incredible fundraising community we have committed $450,125 to begin this trial.
This will cover the start-up costs as well as funding 5 participants to complete the rehabilitation. Read more about the Trial announcement here; https://www.pcsrf.org.au/treatment-for-paralysis-a-step-closer/
