  • Title: Research - Xpro
    Descriptive info: The establishment of the first National data base of ex-professional footballers will enable Xpro to examine debilitating conditions experienced by professional footballers during their career.. The last study into Osteoarthritis, in 1997, discovered two alarming statistics.. Ex-professional footballers are 1000 times more likely to suffer Osteoarthritis in the joints than any other profession.. Four out of five ex-professional footballers have Osteoarthritis.. The first research programme will investigate Osteoarthritis, in the joints.. Although there has been previous research into OA this research programme will be the most comprehensive, to date and will produce the most compelling information ever.. That will be followed by a study of Alzheimer`s disease, before focus switches to the affects of cortisone injections.. The initial research programme, into Osteoarthritis, to be carried out by Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham University, will be lead by Dr Colin Fuller, Associate Professor, Centre for Sports Medicine.. Dr  ...   taken this positive initiative and are leading the project.. Because of the importance of Xpro's intended research programme FIFA has indicated it wishes the charity to extend the range of the research to former players in other countries.. Professor Dvorak, who is also Head of FIFA's Medical Assessment and Research Programme added:.. "I would very much like F-MARC to support the research and provide some medical input into the project.. Xpro is working closely with the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council, (IIAC) to seek recognition of OA as a prescribed industrial disease for ex-professional footballers.. The aim is that the research project into Osteoarthritis will eventually lead to ex-professional footballers being able to obtain state benefits to which they are currently not entitled, unlike miners and farmers.. The extra financial assistance, for former players who are suffering debilitating conditions, will enhance quality of life for those ex-professionals..
