Brief Summary:
The NCTT is a prospective, multicenter, observational research network for subjects with chronic spinal cord and/or chronic traumatic brain injury.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Spinal Cord Injury Traumatic Brain Injury Other: Data and sample repository

Detailed Description:
Current treatment for Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury focuses on stabilizing the patient and preventing secondary injury with the aim of maximizing the best chance of recovery. Most patients will show varying amounts of recovery, but, when the injury is severe, that recovery is only partial. Enrollment in the NCTT will allow for classification and characterization of injury, function, co-morbidities, secondary issues/problems, research interests and will serve as a conduit for enrollment into interventional studies.

Study Type : Observational [Patient Registry]

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Spinal Cord and Traumatic Brain Injury Subjects
Patients with a history of spinal cord and/or traumatic brain injury will provide data and samples so that they may be queried for interventional studies.
Other: Data and sample repository
Subjects with spinal cord and/or traumatic brain injury, family members and healthy volunteers will provide data and samples.

Family Members and Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteer controls or family members may be enrolled for identification of genetic mutations.
Other: Data and sample repository
Subjects with spinal cord and/or traumatic brain injury, family members and healthy volunteers will provide data and samples.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. International Standard Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury [ Time Frame: greater than 6 months post-injury ]
    functional ability (sensory and motor) for spinal cord injury subjects

  2. Disability Rating Scale [ Time Frame: greater than 6 months post-injury ]
    functional outcome scale for brain injury subjects


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood, urine, and saliva
