  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
A matching placebo tablet was not used and the order of testing was not randomized. The total number of subjects recruited was relatively small and extrapolation to a broader group of individuals with chronic SCI may not be appropriate.
