National Center for Testing Treatments in Chronic Spinal Cord and Traumatic Brain Injury (NCTT)
Lead Physician: Dong Kim, M.D.
The Mischer Neuroscience Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center recently launched the National Center for Testing Treatments in Chronic Spinal Cord and Traumatic Brain Injury (NCTT). NCTT will be a multi-site research facility dedicated to the testing of treatments for people with chronic spinal cord and brain injury.
Patients ages 18 or older who 1) have a history of spinal cord injury and/or brain injury and 2) are able to provide HIPAA authorization to share prior medical records/imaging are eligible to enroll in the NCTT.
Patients who enroll in the NCTT will undergo a medical history and physical exam and will be asked to complete a series of standardized questionnaires regarding their functional ability, secondary problems, other medical issues, quality of life, and research interests. The NCTT will then contact patients for possible participation in studies for which they meet the enrollment criteria.
Subjects will be kept on the NCTT contact list only for as long as they wish to remain in the program.
