The drug-Simvastatin, may help reduce spinal cord injury caused by oxygen deprivation during surgery. In a recent study, researchers gave rats specific dosages of the drug after intentionally producing a spinal cord injury simulating a serious complication that would occur with real patients during surgery.

The result- Researches compared spinal cord damage and paraplegia and found that after 24 and 48 hours, movement of rear limbs had increased in rats that were given Simvastatin.

This is an exciting discovery and improvement which may shed more light on these types of injuries from car accidents.
