Darbepoetin-alpha (DA) is a novel erythropoiesis-stimulating agent developed for treating anemia. In animal models, recombinant human erythropoietin has been reported to be beneficial for neuroprotection. In this study, we determined whether DA would protect the spinal cord against ischemia-reperfusion injury in a rabbit model. Forty rabbits were randomized… CONTINUE READING
