Abstract

Objective: Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to an inflammatory response and results in oxidative stress, which has deleterious effects on several organ systems. Riboflavin is an easily absorbed micronutrient that plays an important role in maintaining health in humans and animals. The present study was designed to investigate the putative protective effect of riboflavin against SCI-induced spinal cord and kidney damage.
