Bradykinin is one of the key molecules involved in the disruption of the blood-brain barrier and blood-spinal cord barrier occurring after spinal cord injury (SCI). Previously we have shown a biphasic opening of the blood-spinal cord barrier as well as increased transport of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha) after SCI by compression of the lumbar… CONTINUE READING
