Autoreactive antibodies against neurons and basal lamina found in serum following experimental brain contusion in rats


Background. Brain trauma is a risk factor for delayed CNS degeneration which may be attenuated by anti-inflammatory treatment. CNS injuries may cause anti-brain reactivity. This study was undertaken to analyze the pattern of delayed post-traumatic anti-brain immunity in experimental brain contusion. Method. Adult Sprague-Dawley and Lewis rats were subjected… (More)
