BACKGROUND The present study was designed to evaluate the secondary microglial activation processes after spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODS A quantitative histological study was performed to determine ED-1 positive cells, glial cell density, and cavitation size in untreated SCI rats at days 1, 2, and 4, and weeks 1, 2, 3, and 4. RESULTS The results of glial cell quantification along the 4900-µm long injured spinal cord showed a significant increase in glial cell density percentage at day 2… CONTINUE READING
