It mainly focuses on finding significant metabolites in serum using 1H NMR based spectroscopic methods and to study the variation of concentration of these metabolites during the recovery of the patient ongoing treatment after surgery. Significant metabolites, namely, lactate, glycine, acetone and succinate were identified using statistical methods (ANOVA along with Mann- Whitney U test) and are found to be elevated during the time of injury. The levels gradually decrease as the patient recovers in an average period of six months.This is a prospective case-control preliminary study on recovery of the patient during acute spinal cord injury.
