The microglial cell transplantation in SCI rats using the micro-syringe method was simple and feasible.
Finally, abnormal microglial cells are also associated with neurological disorders [92-94].
Some studies have already verified that anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, could alleviate CNS inflammation and inhibit the activation of microglial cells [37, 38].
The enzyme responsible for the generation of ROI in an oxidative burst in microglial cells is NADPH oxidase, which transfers an electron from a single cytoplasmic NADPH molecule to an oxygen molecule, producing superoxide anion ([O.sup.-.sub.2]).
Activated microglial cells are also capable of producing both neurotrophic factors and antioxidants that can improve the neuronal function as well as neurotoxic cell signal factors [12-15].
