University of Michigan has developed an EpiPen for a spinal cord injury treatment intervention 

Spinal Cord Injury – Overview

“Currently, the ability to reverse the effects of a spinal cord injury is extremely limited and is the holy grail of spinal medicine,” says Anthony Kouri, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Toledo Medical Center. Instead of aiding the spinal cord, the inflammatory cells destroy neuronal cells before they can heal.”

Leading Cause of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Automobile accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, with athletic activities and sports accounting for 10% of all reported injuries. These types of injuries are most prevalent for males between the ages of 16 and 30.
