    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to establish strategies to minimize secondary damage to the injured spinal cord. Secondary damage that follows spinal cord injury (SCI) involves inflammatory and excitotoxic pathways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neurotrophic signalling by GDNF and its receptors

    Author : Miles Trupp; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Many investigators have sought a polypeptide which would alleviate the neuronal loss associated with Parkinson's disease--specifically dopaminergic neurons of the ventral mesencephalon. The survival of this population of neurons has been known for some time to be promoted by soluble factors present in the conditioned media of glial cell lines. READ MORE
