One of the most completely validated processes involved in secondary tissue damage following acute brain or spinal cord injury and in many chronic neurodegenerative diseases has to do with the pathological formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS). These are generated by multiple mechanisms and give rise to highly reactive oxygen radicals that can damage neuronal, glial, and microvascular elements. Particular interest has centered upon oxygen radical-induced… CONTINUE READING
