Infections are the leading cause of death for individuals with traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). Along with increased infection rates, inflammation is often also observed in persons with chronic SCI. Together, immunological changes post-SCI are also poised to impede neurological recovery and mediate common medical consequences of SCI, including atherogenesis and neuropathic pain. The molecular mechanisms contributing to increased infection susceptibility and inflammation in persons living… CONTINUE READING
