About the SCiStar Study

Doctors are actively seeking participants for a clinical research study to evaluate three increasing doses of AST-OPC1, an investigational agent for people who recently suffered a complete cervical (in the neck) spinal cord injury (SCI). All doses of the investigational agent must be administered at a single point in time between 14 and 30 days after injury. Use our interactive prescreener to determine if someone you know may qualify to participate in the study.


A spinal cord injury (SCI) typically results from a physical blow that fractures or dislocates the disks of bone that make up the spine, disrupting sensory signals between the brain and the body. SCI degrees of seriousness and treatment options vary.
