The clinical trial below was introduced to Lessons From A Paralyzed Dog by a reader whose son became paralyzed after an accident. We are grateful to her for alerting us and we sincerely hope this amazing study will be beneficial to both humans and canines.
Frazier the French Bulldog had a spinal injury that left him unable to use his hind legs. He is one of the participants that travel from their hometowns to Iowa State University every few months to participate in an exciting clinical trial that hopes to find out if a new medication called Chondroitinase might help him walk again. The study is still in need of participants.
