Abstract:
Article reviewing research on medical treatment (including drug therapies) intended to improve neurological function in acute and chronic spinal cord injury (SCI). Acute therapies discussed include the drugs methylprednisolone, gangliosides, and tirilazad mesylate. Chronic therapies discussed include nerve growth factors and tissue implantation (peripheral nerve implants and fetal neuronal cell implants). Also discusses recent work in neurophysiology that may eventually lead to therapies.
