Impaired ability of voluntary walking and bladder dysfunction is an acute problem among veterans with spinal cord injuries (SCI). Results of recent studies, including our own, revealed that there are at least three major factors known to limit recovery from SCI: (1) decreased neuronal excitability, (2) presence of axonal growth/regeneration inhibitors, and (3) lack of neurotrophin support. Using animal models, we have recently demonstrated that degradation of scar-related inhibitory Chondroitin...
