Adenovirus-mediated retrograde transfer of neurotrophin-3 gene enhances survival of anterior horn neurons of twy/twy mice with chronic mechanical compression of the spinal cord.


Chronic mechanical compression of the spinal cord causes neural tissue damage, including loss of anterior horn cells around the level of injury. Exogenous delivery of neurotrophins to neuronal cells could provide neuroprotection to a spinal cord subjected to mechanical injury. We investigated the efficacy of retrograde gene delivery of adenoviral vector… (More)
