While therapeutic spinal cord grafting procedures are of interest in the chronic spinal cord injury stage, previous experimental grafting studies, including human spinal cord tissue, have mainly focused on the acute stage. Therefore, solid human embryonic spinal cord grafts were implanted in acute or chronic spinal cord aspiration cavities of immunodeficient rats to compare the morphological and locomotor outcome to that of lesion alone cases. Locomotor function was assessed using the Basso… CONTINUE READING
