Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury
Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury are two conditions that may only happen once in your life but can have long lasting effects. Many people who have experienced either condition can suffer from partial paralysis, spasticity, dysphagia (swallowing difficulties), and other sensory issues for an extended period after the event. Here at New England Institute for Clinical Research, we are dedicated to improving the lives of those suffering from these prolonged issues.
- NEICR is currently enrolling for a study looking at an alternate formulation of a botulinum toxin for the treatment of lower limb muscle spasticity. The study medication has already been approved by the FDA for treatment of upper limb spasticity. In order to qualify for this study, patients need to have lower limb spasticity. This study begins with a double-blind period, meaning there is a chance of getting a placebo injection. After this brief double-blind period, patients have the option to roll over into an open label phase where receiving the active medication is assured. Additionally, in this open label period it is possible to also receive treatment for upper limb spasticity. Click the button to view more information about this study on clinicaltrials.gov.
