Biomarkers for Pain in Spinal Cord Injury

Lead Physician: Gigi Hergenroeder, R.N.

 

Investigators in this clinical trial believe that spinal cord injury (SCI) patients who develop chronic pain have biomarkers in their blood that can predict their condition.

Patients two or more years post injury, who have been identified as having neuropathic pain or no pain, will be asked to donate blood samples that will be evaluated for biomarkers.

The goal of the research is early intervention to prevent the onset of chronic pain.
