Mouse study shows spinal cord injury causes bone marrow failure syndrome

Research conducted at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and The Ohio State University College of Medicine found that spinal cord injuries in mice cause an acquired bone marrow failure syndrome that may...

Nanoparticles promote functional healing following spinal cord injury

Novel approach also shows promise for autoimmune diseases Paralyzing damage in spinal cord injury (SCI) is often caused by the zealous immune response to the injury. NIBIB-funded engineers have developed nanoparticles that lure immune cells...

An ‘EpiPen’ for spinal cord injuries

ANN ARBOR—An injection of nanoparticles can prevent the body’s immune system from overreacting to trauma, potentially preventing some spinal cord injuries from resulting in paralysis. The approach was demonstrated in mice at the University of...
Spinal injuries throw body clocks off-schedule

Spinal injuries throw body clocks off-schedule, new study shows

In the hours and days following a spinal cord injury, the gears that control the body’s internal clocks fall profoundly out of sync, impacting body temperature, hormone fluctuation, immunity and the timing of a...

Immune cells could hold key to therapies for spinal cord injuries

Fresh insights into how Zebrafish repair their damaged nerve connections could aid the development of therapies for people with spinal cord injuries. Scientists have found the immune system plays a key role in helping Zebrafish...

What is Sepsis?

https://youtu.be/6NdLnHbLZMU Sepsis is a life threatening medical condition that arises when the body’s attempt to fight an infection results in the immune system damaging tissues and organs. Sepsis is your body’s overreaction to an infection....

Ohio State Scientists Explain How Gut Microbes Change After Spinal Cord Injury

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The community of bacteria that live in our intestines, also called the “gut microbiome,” is important to normal intestinal function. Knowing that spinal cord injuries often negatively affect the gut’s ability...

Spinal Cord Injury Causes ‘Immune System Paralysis’

COLUMBUS, Ohio - New research led by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is showing that spinal cord injuries can also cause a "paralysis" of the immune system that renders these patients more...

Controlling Immune Response in Spinal Cord Injury Patients

The immune system of spinal cord injury patients can be controlled using a family of therapeutic stem cells, according to findings published in Scientific Reports. Researchers from Case Western Reserve University studied the therapeutic stem...

Scientists discover trigger for protective immune response to spinal cord injuries

Hot on the heels of discovering a protective form of immune response to spinal cord injury, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have pinpointed the biological trigger for that response -...
