Conclusion: These results suggested that DUSP19-mediated SCI-induced apoptosis and inflammation via NF-κB signaling and might therefore serve as a potential therapeutic target for SCI. PMID: 31813339 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

After complete spinal cord injury, mammals, including mice, rats and cats, recover hindlimb locomotion with treadmill training. The premise is that sensory cues consistent with locomotion reorganize spinal sensorimotor circuits. Here, we show that hindlimb standing and locomotion recover after spinal transection in cats without task-specific training. Spinal-transected cats recovered full weight bearing standing and locomotion after five weeks of rhythmic manual stimulation of triceps surae muscles (non-specific training) and without any intervention. Moreover, cats modulated locomotor speed and performed split-belt locomo...

The objective of this study was to explore patients ’ perspectives on the usability of this self-management app. A mixed-methods study design was implemented. The app was trialed at a local rehabilitation centre with 20 inpatient participants who experienced a SCI. They received mobile app training sessions throughout their inpatient rehabilitation . A thematic analysis was performed on qualitative data from post-discharge exit questionnaires and researchers’ field notes. Quantitative data (in the form of participants’ tool usage data and self-reported system usability scale scores) were collected at disc...

To assess the role of ASK1 in trauma-induced reactive gliosis, we examined the phosphorylation of ASK1 and the expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and vimentin after scratch injury in cultured astrocytes and spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats. Enhanced phosphorylation of ASK1 was detected during reactive gliosis both in vitro and in ...
