Oligodendrogliogenesis and axon remyelination after traumatic spinal cord injuries in animal studies: A systematic review
Extensive oligodendrocyte death after acute traumatic spinal cord injuries (TSCI) leads to axon demyelination and subsequently may leave axons vulnerable to degeneration. Despite the present evidence showing spontaneous ...
