Abstract

Administration of methylprednisolone within several hours after injury to the spinal cord has been shown to reduce subsequent impairment in humans and experimental animals. Secondary damage following initial trauma is probably caused in part by the toxicity of released excitatory amino acids. We demonstrate here that methylprednisolone reduces the release of excitatory amino acids following experimental spinal cord injury in rats.
