Augmented Locomotor Recovery after Spinal Cord Injury in the Athymic Nude Rat
The immune response contributes to ongoing secondary tissue destruction following spinal cord injury (SCI). Although infiltrating neutrophils and monocytes have been well studied in this process, T-cells have received less attention. The objective of this study was to assess locomotor recovery and tissue morphology after SCI in athymic (nude) rats, in which T-cell numbers are reduced. Results in athymic rats were compared with heterozygote littermates with normal T-cell profiles and with...[Show more]
