Abstract

Ischemia and the following reperfusion damage are critical mechanisms of spinal cord injury. Statins have been reported to decrease ischemia-reperfusion injury in many organs including the spinal cord. Anti-oxidative effect is one of the main protective mechanisms of statin against neuronal death and cytotoxicity. We hypothesized that statins' anti-oxidative property would yield neuroprotective effects on spinal cord ischemia-reperfusion injury METHODS: Primary cultured spinal cord motor neurons were isolated from Sprague-Dawley rat fetuses. Ischemia-reperfusion injury model was induced by 60 min of oxygen and glucose deprivation (OGD) and 24 h of reoxygenation. Healthy and OGD cells were treated with simvastatin at concentrations of 0.1, 1, and 10 μM for 24 h. Cell viability was assessed using water-soluble tetrazolium salt (WST)-8, cytotoxicity with LDH, and production of free radicals with DCFDA (2',7'-dichlorofluorescein diacetate). OGD reduced neuronal viability compared to normoxic control by 35.3%; however, 0.1-10 μM of simvastatin treatment following OGD improved cell survival. OGD increased LDH release up to 214%; however, simvastatin treatment attenuated its cytotoxicity at concentrations of 0.1-10 μM (p < 0.001 and p = 0.001). Simvastatin also reduced deteriorated morphological changes of motor neurons following OGD. Oxidative stress was reduced by simvastatin (0.1-10 μM) compared to untreated cells exposed to OGD (p < 0.001). Simvastatin effectively reduced spinal cord neuronal death and cytotoxicity against ischemia-reperfusion injury, probably via modification of oxidative stress.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 May 2017.
All research outputs
#17,880,829
of 22,957,478 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research
#915
of 1,391 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#224,895
of 312,054 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research
#16
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,957,478 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,391 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 312,054 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
