It has been proposed that complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a post-traumatic autoimmune disease. Previously, we observed that B cells are required for the full expression of CRPS-like changes in a mouse tibia fracture model and that serum immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies from fracture mice have pronociceptive effects in muMT fracture mice lacking B cells. The current study evaluated the pronociceptive effects of injecting CRPS patient serum or antibodies into muMT fracture mice by measuring hind paw allodynia and unweighting changes. Complex regional pain syndrome serum binding was measured against autoantigens pre...

Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the first case report to summarize the delayed complications of a spinal cord injury and acute syringomyelia progression to the brainstem in a short period. The symptoms were relieved by an emergency PFD, chosen due to the rapid progression of symptoms. An atypical treatment strategy is described for extremely rare cases, but with a good short-term prognosis. PMID: 32202488 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We studied the efficiency of transplantation of neural stem/progenitor cells from human olfactory mucosa in chronic spinal cord injury. Neural stem/progenitor cells were obtained by a protocol modified by us and transplanted to rats with spinal post-traumatic cysts. It was shown that transplantation of neural stem/progenitor cells from human olfactory lining improved motor activity of hind limbs in the recipient rat with spinal post-traumatic cysts (according to BBB scale).
