CONCLUSIONS: Precipitation due to suicide attempt causes 2% of spinal cord injuries, with depression and psychotic disorders being the most prevalent psychiatric disorders. After the rehabilitation period, this population requires special attention from the mental health teams since they combine risk factors to commit suicide such as the history of previous attempts and the presence of a chronic disabling condition.

In conclusion, HSC ageing is characterised by reduced self-renewal, myeloid and platelet HSC skewing, and expanded clonal haematopoiesis that is considered a preleukaemic state. The underlying molecular mechanisms seem to be related to increased oxidative stress due to ROS accumulation and DNA damage, which are influenced by both cell- and cell non-autonomous mechanisms such as prolonged exposure to infections, inflammageing, immunosenescence, and age-related changes in the HSC niche. Thus, HSC ageing seems to be multifactorial and we are only beginning to connect all the dots. The Price of Progress or the Waste...

It was an uplifting tale about a young man who rediscovers love and laughter after a devastating spinal cord injury left him in a dangerous pool of depression. Finding myself at times in my own, albeit more shallow, pool of depression, I knew this story was exactly what I needed to remind me that I could find meaning in my life after my stroke. As I continued reading, anticipating the feel-good happy ending with a girl saving the boy's life with the po...
