In general

SCITrialsFinder.net is a service provided without cost to users to deliver current information about SCI clinical trials and studies, as well as assist people living with SCI whether they might be eligible to volunteer and participate in SCI clinical trials (“Service”). The website is also of potential value to SCI clinicians, clinical trial investigators and similar personnel to use the information when discussing the possible risks and benefits and goals of various experimental studies with potential volunteers and their family.

Nothing in SCITrialsFinder.net should be used to suggest beneficial effects or a course of treatment as a result of participation by a person with SCI, in a particular clinical trial. Information contained in SCITrialsFinder.net is not a substitute for treatment or consultation by a physician or other health care provider.

SCITrialsFinder.net requires that its users input accurate and truthful information and does not independently verify the accuracy or truth of such information unless the SCITrialsFinder.net administrator is specifically notified about a potential problem.

The operation of SCITrialsFinder.net is at the discretion of SCOPE (Spinal Cord Outcomes Partnership Endeavor) and ASIA (American Spinal Injury Association). SCOPE/ASIA reserves the right to discontinue SCITrialsFinder.net at any time, limit its use, or prohibit certain individuals or institutions from using it, and SCOPE/ASIA shall not be liable to anyone for any claim of loss or damage related to such decisions.
