Spinal cord injury (SCI) in dogs is a well recognized animal model to study pathogenesis and treatment modalities of the debilitating human disease. To define the contributing role of microglial cell activation to the secondary wave following SCI, microglia from 15 dogs with SCI confirmed by imaging, gross, and histopathological examination were isolated(More)
SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The mechanisms of injury in spinal cord injury in dogs are similar to those in human patients and the dog is considered to be a valuable translational model for new treatment modalities. Studies regarding the quantitative characteristics of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in spinal cord injury in a uniform cohort of(More)
Differences in the regulation of surface molecule expression and functional activity of microglia, the resident immune effector elements of the central nervous system (CNS), might give important insights into understanding the predilection sites of some diseases within the CNS. Therefore, canine microglial cells in relation to different topographical(More)
