Many therapies that have been developed for acute spinal cord injury (SCI) either influence or are influenced by posttraumatic inflammation. Many such therapies have reportedly produced promising neurologic benefits in animal models of SCI, but demonstrating convincing efficacy in human clinical trials has remained elusive. This discrepancy may be related in part to differences in the inflammatory response to SCI between human patients and the widely studied rodent models. Our objectives were… CONTINUE READING
