Moderate posttraumatic hypothermia decreases early calpain-mediated proteolysis and concomitant cytoskeletal compromise in traumatic axonal injury.


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) in animals and man generates widespread axonal injury characterized by focal axolemmal permeability changes, induction of calpain-mediated proteolysis, and neurofilament side-arm modification associated with neurofilament compaction (NFC) evolving to axonal disconnection. Recent observations have suggested that moderate… (More)
