Answer

Two North American studies have addressed the administration of monosialotetrahexosyl ganglioside (GM-1) following acute spinal cord injury. The available medical evidence does not support a significant clinical benefit. It was evaluated as a treatment adjunct after the administration of methylprednisolone. [5, 52]
