Novel mouse model of spinal cord injury-induced heterotopic ossification

Heejae Kang, BA, et al.

Heterotopic ossification develops in about 20 to 30 percent of veteran patients with spinal cord injury from the conflicts in the Middle East and significantly impairs their rehabilitation. To date, no effective prevention and treatment exists for this disease. The goal of this study was to develop a novel small animal model of spinal cord injury-induced heterotopic ossification, which will serve as a powerful tool in exploring the molecular mechanisms and developing novel treatments for this disease, thus improving healthcare for veterans.
