JAMA. 2005;293(2):151. doi:10.1001/jama.293.2.151-c

The first-ever piece of legislation directly addressing spinal cord injury and paralysis research passed unanimously in the Senate on November 16. A similar measure was approved unanimously in the House on October 7.

The legislation asks the National Institutes of Health to prepare a report on how it encourages using multidisciplinary research teams to advance treatments, develop new therapies, and collaborate on clinical trials of spinal cord injury and paralysis.
