The Chinese medicine compound, Jisuikang, can promote recovery of neurological function by inhibiting lipid peroxidation, scavenging oxygen free radicals, and effectively improving the local microenvironment after spinal cord injury. [] Key Method Jisuikang (50, 25, and 12.5 g/kg/d) and prednisolone were administered 30 minutes after anesthesia. Basso, Beattie, and Bresnahan locomotor scale scores and the oblique board test showed improved motor function recovery in the prednisone group and moderate-dose…

Jisuikang Promotes the Repair of Spinal Cord Injury in Rats by Regulating NgR/RhoA/ROCK Signal Pathway
Results indicated JSK could improve the motor function of rats with SCI by inhibiting the NgR/RhoA/ROCK signal pathway, which suggests the potential applicability of JSK as a nerve regeneration agent.
Asiaticoside Inhibits Neuronal Apoptosis and Promotes Functional Recovery After Spinal Cord Injury in Rats
Asiaticoside exerts protective effects against spinal cord injury in rats, possibly by inhibiting the apoptosis of neurons and anti-inflammatory mechanisms.
Aquaporin‐4 expression dynamically varies after acute spinal cord injury‐induced disruption of blood spinal cord barrier in rats
After SCI, the water content of the spinal cord and the BSCB permeability increases, together with the excessive expression of AQP4, which reached their peak on the third day after injury.
Using Network Pharmacology to Systematically Decipher the Potential Mechanisms of Jisuikang in the Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury
This study showed that the anti-SCI effects of JSK may be mediated through numerous bioactive components, multiple gene targets, and inflammation-related pathways and provided potential novel targets for directed therapies for treating SCI.
Research progress in use of traditional Chinese medicine for treatment of spinal cord injury.
Signatures of altered long noncoding RNAs and messenger RNAs expression in the early acute phase of spinal cord injury
The identification of lncRNAs and mRNAs may offer potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets for SCI and may provide novel insights into the molecular mechanism of the early acute phase of SCI.
Actions of Brain-Derived Neurotrophin Factor in the Neurogenesis and Neuronal Function, and Its Involvement in the Pathophysiology of Brain Diseases
Action of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and related signaling molecules on CNS neurons, and their contributions to the pathophysiology of brain diseases are discussed.
The protocadherin alpha cluster is required for axon extension and myelination in the developing central nervous system
Results indicate that the Pcdhα cluster can promote the growth and myelination of axons in the neurodevelopmental stage.
Chinese Herbal Medicine in Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.
Current evidence suggests that CHM is an effective and safe treatment for SCI and could be treated as a complementary and alternative option with few side effects, but higher methodological quality, rigorously designed RCTs with large sample sizes are needed to confirm the results.


[Effects of Jisuikang on Nogo-NgR gene expression in spinal cord rats with injury].
The decoction Jisuikang (Chinese characters) can promote the nerve cell regeneration by regulating Nogo-A and NgR gene expression, activating Nogo - NgR signaling pathways after acute spinal cord injury.
Effect of Buyang Huanwu Decoction on the Content of Platelet Activating Factor in Spinal Cord Tissue of Rats with Spinal Cord Injury
Buyang Huanwu Decoction can improve the hind limb motor function and inhibit weight loss of rats with SCI, which may be related to the decrease of the PAF content and the relief of the secondary injury of PAF on spinal cord tissue.
Experiment study of Jisuikang on treatment of rat after spinal cord injury
Jisuikang can inhibit NOS expressing and degrade the content of NO and raise thecontent of SOD, and perform positive control with prednisone.
Reduction in antioxidant enzyme expression and sustained inflammation enhance tissue damage in the subacute phase of spinal cord contusive injury
These findings demonstrate that the differential expression in proteins related to signal transduction, oxidoreduction and stress contribute to extensive inflammation, causing time-dependent spread of tissue damage after severe SCI.
Combined treatment with FK506 and nerve growth factor for spinal cord injury in rats
Experimental observations indicated that FK506 and NGF exhibit a synergistic effect in the treatment of spinal cord injury in rats and that the combined treatment may effectively promote neural regeneration and functional recovery in rats following spinal Cord injury.
Blockade of sodium channels by phenytoin protects ultrastructure and attenuates lipid peroxidation in experimental spinal cord injury
Phenytoin appears to protect spinal cord against injury by decreasing lipid peroxidation and lessening neuronal damage associated with SCI in rats.
Substance P induces M2-type macrophages after spinal cord injury
Early intervention of the devastating inflammatory response by SP treatment caused the lesion cavity to become filled with robust axonal outgrowth that overlaid the M2 macrophages at 2 weeks and culminated in tissue sparing and improvement in functional recovery from the SCI.
