SPINAL CORD INJURY CLINICAL TRIALS PUBLISHED FROM 1998 TO 2003

To identify the spinal cord injury clinical trials that were published from 1998 to 2003, Institute of Medicine staff searched Medline using the relevant medical subject headings as search terms and limiting the searches by publication types relevant to clinical trials. Additional clinical trial terms, namely, “randomized controlled trial,” “controlled,” “placebo,” “double-blind,” and “prospective,” were also used in the search strategy.

The titles and abstracts were reviewed to determine the clinical conditions and outcomes that were addressed in each article. Table G-1 categorizes the clinical trials by the primary outcome(s) examined and secondarily is organized in chronological order. The majority of clinical trials targeted secondary complications that arise as a result of a spinal cord injury and did not directly test therapies to improve lost function. Articles that addressed multiple conditions (e.g., the effects of bowel and bladder functions on the quality of life) were counted once in each category and are designated with an asterisk.
