In the first year we determined the optimal polymer sizes required to produce a theoretical optimized osmotic transfer of metabolic water out of the spinal cord tissues after injury and into the capillary space for rapid removal by convective transfer. In this years studies, we have optimized the spinal cord injury models and the polytrauma models that will be used to test the effectiveness of osmotic PEG polymer treatment.
