While many studies have focused on modulating the immune response and enhancing axonal regeneration after spinal cord injury (SCI), there is limited work being performed on evaluating the role of glial scar in SCI. We sought to evaluate the effects of glial scar resection in contusion models and dorsal hemisection models of SCI. At 1-week postinjury, 2 mm of glial scar was excised from specimens in one of the two groups from each injury model. Functional outcome was measured weekly using the… CONTINUE READING
