3. A total of 13 clinical sites are open for enrollment.

 

4. This is the first clinical study of its investigational degradable polymer Neuro-Spinal Scaffold.

 

5. The FDA approved the pilot study and it is expected to capture preliminary safety and effectiveness data in five subjects with acute thoracic spinal cord injury.

 

"Our group has a particular interest in spinal trauma and spinal cord injury," said Dr. Yocom. "I'm excited that InVivo is approaching the significant unmet medical need in this field with such a novel technology."
