Abstract

Objectives: Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) have high morbidity and mortality rates and currently the definitive treatment of complete SCIs are still not possible. We investigated the effects of the medroxy progesterone acetate on the pro-inflammatory cytokines, TNF-alpha and IL-1beta in the early phase of the SCI.
