BW755C is an inhibitor of both cyclo-oxygenase and lipoxygenase, which has been found to have protective effects after myocardial ischemia in dogs. Impact injury to the spinal cord is associated with tissue ischemia as well as with the accumulation of eicosanoids. In the present studies we evaluated the effects of BW755C after traumatic spinal cord injury in rats. Drug treatment reduced thromboxane B2 levels and improved neurological recovery as compared to treatment with equal-volume… CONTINUE READING
