The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between endothelin-1 (ET-1), a prominent vasoactive agent, and the breakdown of the blood-spinal cord barrier along the axis of the cord after a moderate spinal cord injury. In the first study rats (n = 10) were euthanized 24 h after spinal cord injury and compared to sham (n = 5) and unoperated (n… CONTINUE READING
