Ischemic reperfusion injury in rabbit spinal cord: protective effect of superoxide dismutase on neurological recovery and spinal infarction.

Abstract

The potential role of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a specific superoxide anion radical scavenger, in treating spinal cord ischemia was investigated in rabbits subjected to aortic occlusion for 20 min. SOD treatment, targeted to the early reperfusion period, reduced both motor dysfunction and incidence of spinal infarcts at 7 days after ischemia. Present… (More)
