Pretreatment with High-Dose n-3 LC-PUFAs Mitigates Damage and Improves Recovery from Spinal Cord Injury

The importance of DHA in the recovery from spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries has been demonstrated in DHA-treated animals that exhibit dramatic improvements in motor function, greatly reduced neuronal loss, improved learning, less oxidative stress, and more rapid recovery. This work suggests that supplementation with DHA immediately after injury would improve cellular and functional

Improved Motor Function and Less Cell Loss With DHA in Mouse Spinal Cord Injury

Traumatic spinal cord injury has severe consequences for survivors including pain, paralysis and impaired sensory and motor function and various effects in the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and autonomic systems. The consequences depend on the site and extent of the injury. Surgical decompression, especially when performed within 24 hours after the injury is associated with improved
