The University of Washington seeks participants for two research studies on spinal cord injury rehabilitation

The University of Washington’s Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System, a spinal cord injury (SCI) Model System, is engaging participants for two research studies on recovery from SCI.

The goal of the first study, Effectiveness of Physical Activity for Improving Mood in People Aging with MS or SCI, is to clarify what effects exercise may have on improving mood in individuals with multiple sclerosis or SCI. Participants will be reimbursed for phone expenses and will also receive up to $120 in compensation. Please contact 206-221-5641 or 866-928-2114 if you are interested in participating.

The second study, Project to Improve Symptoms and Mood after Spinal Cord Injury (PRISMS), seeks to determine if a 12-week regimen of venlafaxine XR (Effexor XR) is effective in treating symptoms of pain, poor sleep, low energy, low interest in everyday activities, and depressed mood in individuals with SCI. Please contact 206-897-4731 if you are interested in participating.
