Enhanced axonal growth into a spinal cord contusion injury site in a strain of mouse (129X1/SvJ) with a diminished inflammatory response.

Abstract

After injury in the adult central nervous system, invading and intrinsic cells contribute to the formation of a lesion site that is refractory to axonal growth. To test the hypothesis that the inflammatory response to trauma dictates the extent of axonal growth after spinal cord injury, the time course of lesion evolution was compared in two mouse strains… (More)
