Spinal Cord injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries and Strokes, a cascade of damages
The initial trauma called the initial lesion, is focal and/or diffuse:
WAVES OF DEATH
Leads to cascades of damages called secondary lesions that spread from initial lesion:Neuronal suffering and death
Our positioning : an emergency injection of MAP4343 to prevent secondary damages after the initial lesion.
In 3 different animal models of Spinal Cord Injuries, MAP4343:
