Clinical Trial for Patients in the United States and Canada
Vertex Spring Trial

An Investigational Study for Patients With Acute Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury in the Neck

Acute Spinal Cord Injury Trial

Patients with recent acute traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in the neck area who will undergo decompression/stabilization surgery starting within 72 hours of injury may qualify for the SPRING Trial. The investigational therapy, VX-210, is applied to the spinal cord during the initial decompression/stabilization surgery.

Researchers are now evaluating the efficacy and safety of this investigational therapy. Participants who qualify and are enrolled in the trial will be assigned at random to receive VX-210 or a placebo. Participants will not know if they are being given the therapy or the placebo.

Follow-up evaluations are carried out for 12 months after treatment. Researchers will assess the efficacy and safety of VX-210.
