  4. 4. Human neural precursor cells in spinal cord repair

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Junghua Piao; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) often results in substantial neural cell death, axonal degeneration and demyelination, accompanied by loss of sensory and motor functions. Cell therapy may have neuroprotective effects, substitute for lost neural cells, promote regeneration and enhance remyelination in the lesioned spinal cord. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spinal cord stimulation in neuropathy : experimental studies of biochemistry and behaviour

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Jian-Guo Cui; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuropathic pain; mononeuropathy; GABA; glutamate; aspartate; galanin; neuropeptide Y; adenosine; spinal cord stimulation;

    Abstract : Neuropathic pain, presenting with cutaneous hypersensitivity, i.e. allodynia, dysesthesia and hyperalgesia, is often difficult to manage with pharmacotherapy, but may be effectively alleviated by electric spinal cord stimulation (SCS). However, the mode of action of SCS is still poorly understood. READ MORE
