Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes osteoporosis (OP), and the neuropeptide substance P (SP) may play important roles in the pathogenesis of OP after SCI. Our study confirmed SCI-induced sublesional bone loss in young rats at an early stage is associated with a significant increase of SP-immunoreactive nerve fiber innervation density. Spinal cord injury (SCI) causes osteoporosis (OP), and neuropeptides may play important roles in the pathogenesis of OP after SCI. However, few data exist concerning… CONTINUE READING
