Hello! My name is Davidoula and I am from Arta, Greece. My Polygence project is on axon regeneration at the central nervous system. I decided to do research because of the brain. It is a miraculous organ. I like how it can heal by itself and adjust. I would like to showcase my project by publishing it to journals .

Pathophysiology characteristics of spinal cord injuries and potential treatments

Started Feb. 6, 2023

Abstract or project description

Understanding SCI pathophysiology including some of its consequent event sequences during and post-injury is of vital importance in designing an appropriate intervention for SCI. Current therapeutic approaches are broadly classified as neuroprotective, neuro-regenerative, and immune-modulating pathways which will be discussed in detail in this review article. However, there is still a need for more efficient drug-delivery systems providing neuroprotective and neuro-regenerative agents (or their combinations) of available SCI treatments. Considering the financial and physical burden of SCI, developing a combinative approach utilizing neuroprotective and neuro-regenerative strategies to simultaneously target multiple pathways will be a valuable treatment option for many populations.
