About The INSPIRE Study
The INSPIRE Study: InVivo Study of Probable Benefit of the Neuro-Spinal
Scaffold™ for Safety and Neurologic Recovery in Subjects with
Complete Thoracic AIS A Spinal Cord Injury, is designed to demonstrate
the safety and probable benefit of the Neuro-Spinal Scaffold™
for the treatment of complete T2-T12/L1 spinal cord injury in support of
a Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) application for approval. For more
information, refer to https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/study/NCT02138110.
About the Neuro-Spinal Scaffold™ Implant
Following acute spinal cord injury, surgical implantation of the
biodegradable Neuro-Spinal Scaffold within the decompressed and
debrided injury epicenter is intended to support appositional healing,
thereby reducing post-traumatic cavity formation, sparing white matter,
and allowing neural regeneration across the healed wound epicenter. The Neuro-Spinal
Scaffold, an investigational device, has received a Humanitarian Use
Device (HUD) designation and currently is being evaluated in the INSPIRE
pivotal probable benefit study for the treatment of patients with
complete (AIS A) traumatic acute spinal cord injury.
