At 3 days, 1 week and 8 weeks postimmunization (pi; n = 4/time point/group), whole-cell lysates were prepared from the lumbar spinal cord segments and brain tissue.
Parenchymal cell counts were performed on 4-5 lumbar spinal cord sections per animal (n = 6) and expressed as mean number of neutrophils per section.

As shown in figure 2, both AC187 and [rAMY.sub.8-37] caused a moderate but significant bilateral increase of the Fos-like immunoreactivity in the lumbar spinal cord two hours after they were injected i.t.
Morphometric analysis of the brain and lumbar spinal cord was tested by one-way ANOVA followed by Holm-Sidak method.
Briefly, the ventral portions of the lumbar spinal cords of chick embryos were removed using tungsten needles and kept in ice-chilled sterile-filtered PBS until dissections were complete.
Evaluation of the central nervous system revealed a marked perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with associated glial reaction most prominent in the brainstem and spinal cord (Figure 1, lumbar spinal cord, hematoxylin-eosin, original magnification x200).
Proposed to be involved in the regulation of locomotion, limb coordination, and postural support, propriospinal neurons may even possess the capacity to circumvent denervation by relaying supraspinal motor commands to the lumbar spinal cord after thoracic injury [44].
In addition, immunohistochemical studies performed in human lumbar spinal cord have demonstrated the presence of RAGE in motor neurons, but not in resting glial cells in control samples, while in ALS tissues, when motor neurons are lost, RAGE appears to be increased in cells with typical morphologies of astrocytes and microglia; this situation is reflected by an overall stability of total RAGE mRNA levels [27].
