Alexander ‘Sasha’ Rabchevsky is a tenured SCoBIRC endowed Professor of Physiology at the University Kentucky in Lexington, KY and a faculty member of the Spinal Cord & Brain Injury Research Center (SCoBIRC). Sasha is, himself, paralyzed from the chest down as the result of a motorcycle accident in 1985 which fractured his sixth thoracic vertebrae rendering him a complete T5 paraplegic. After graduating with a B.S. in Biology from Hampden-Sydney College, VA only a semester behind his original ’87 class, and working as a technician at the NIH, he was accepted into the University of Florida Neuroscience graduate program in 1990 and worked in the laboratory of Dr. Paul J. Reier. He defended his doctoral thesis in 1995 entitled, “Intraspinal transplantation of microglia: Studies of host cellular responses and effects on neuritic growth.” He then moved to France where he undertook a foreign postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Paris, XII in INSERM Unite 421, headed by Dr. Marc Peschanski, during which he studied neuroimmunology in the context of autoimmune diseases, as well as employing transgenic mice and molecular biology to study the role of TGF-alpha in astrogliosis.
Since 1997, Sasha has been based in Lexington, KY where he has been investigating multiple therapeutic approaches to treat experimental spinal cord injury (SCI). After conducting a second postdoctoral fellowship under the guidance of Dr. Stephen Scheff in the UK Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, he obtained independent funding which helped launch his independent research program. His current efforts are focused on alleviating both hindlimb locomotor and/or autonomic dysfunction following SCI in rats employing pharmacological treatments and/or gene therapy to over-express certain growth factors near injury sites. The laboratory is conducting pioneering studies uniquely characterizing bioenergetic damage to mitochondria after contusion SCI in order to target their dysfunction. Specifically, pharmacological agents that maintain mitochondrial integrity are being administered at acute and more prolonged time points after injury, resulting in significantly reduced secondary tissue damage that is manifested in remarkable hindlimb functional recovery. In a parallel but novel line of investigations, his lab has recently been funded to test whether directly transplanting healthy mitochondria isolated from exogenous sources into the contused rat spinal cord maintains cellular bioenergetics and promotes functional recovery. Alternatively, Sasha’s research has gained him international recognition as a leading expert in autonomic pathophysiology following SCI. In particular, his work has characterized the abnormal neural circuitry which develops below the injury level that is associated with the development of a hypertensive condition termed autonomic dysreflexia; this syndrome occurs in the majority of SCI individuals, including him. To this end, his lab has developed state-of-the-art telemetric monitoring of cardiophysiology before and after injury in order to report that blocking excitatory neurotransmission with neuropathic pain medications (i.e., gabapentinoids) mitigates the incidence and severity of this secondary complication after SCI, along with muscle spasticity, both of which are triggered by noxious stimulation. With these proof-of-principle concepts, his work continues to employ such refined tools of investigation to understand the influences of maladaptive plasticity and/or neuroinflammation on the incidence and/or severity of AD. Most recently he is employing novel antisense oligonucleotides to attenuate muscular spasticity in a chronic SCI model. The aim of these studies will be to inject oligonucleotides intrathecally, designed by the dual-PI (Stamm), to inactivate constitutively active 5HT2C receptors in the injured spinal cord thought to underlie muscle spasticity in chronic stages of SCI utilizing a complete S2 transection SCI model in adult rats by the other dual-PI (Rabchevsky).
Molecular Biological and Biochemical Approaches for Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury
The major focuses of our laboratory are to alleviate both autonomic and/or hind limb locomotor dysfunction following complete transection or incomplete contusion spinal cord injury (SCI) in adult rats, respectively. In conjunction with precise surgical and histological approaches, as well as behavioral and physiological assessments, we have employed gene therapy with replication-defective recombinant adenoviruses and/or lentiviruses injected into injured spinal cords in order to over-express different growth factors or inhibitory molecules. Such site-specific genetic manipulation of endogenous cellular responses after injury has been used to identify processes contributing to beneficial motor recovery and/or undesirable autonomic pathophysiology. An equally important area of our research endeavor has been directed at the molecular biological and biochemical assessments of the temporal profile of mitochondrial dysfunction after contusion SCI in order to establish therapeutic windows for mitochondrial-targeted interventions for promoting tissue sparing and functional recovery.
Autonomic dysreflexia is a condition that develops after severe high thoracic SCI which can lead to potentially life-threatening hypertension which is often triggered by painful stimulation of sensory nerves below the injury that sprout into the injured spinal cord due to elevated of nerve growth factor (NGF) expression. Using a rodent model of this pathophysiological condition, triggered by painful colorectal distension (CRD), we are investigating the contributions of both primary afferent and propriospinal pathway plasticity to the development of autonomic dysreflexia, monitored telemetrically. We are also conducting translational pharmaceutical research to test whether blocking excitatory neurotransmission with neuropathic pain medications (gabapentinoids) mitigates the incidence and severity of this secondary complication after SCI, along with muscle spasticity, both of which are triggered by noxious stimulation.
Mitochondria are the powerhouse of all cells and they are extremely vulnerable to damage following trauma. After establishing the temporal, sequential pattern of compromised bioenergetics (damage) of mitochondria after acute contusion SCI, for the first time, we have compelling evidence that pharmacological agents which target and maintain mitochondrial function are, indeed, neuroprotective after severe contusion SCI. In particular, when administered within an hour after SCI, particular agents that maintain mitochondrial integrity preserve the integrity of both synaptic and non-synaptic mitochondrial populations, assessed one day later; and this preservation is correlated with remarkable spinal cord tissue sparing and, more importantly, significant long-term behavioral recovery of hind limb locomotion. Notably, we employ innovative kinematic assessments along with standard behavioral testing to evaluate the functional efficacy of experimental pharmacotherapeutics.
More recent efforts have been focused on innovative experiments to test whether supplementing healthy mitochondria isolated from exogenous sources into the contused rat spinal cord maintains bioenergetics and promotes functional recovery. In particular we are comparatively assessing intraspinal transplantation of mitochondria derived from two cell-type sources (autologous muscle vs cultured cells) with multiple acute outcome measures and long-term behavioral studies in order to generate robust pre-clinical data for this novel therapeutic.
In newly funded studies, novel oligonucleotides are being tested to attenuate muscular spasticity in a chronic rodent SCI model. The aim of these studies is to inject oligonucleotides intrathecally, designed by the dual-PI (Stamm), to inactivate constitutively active 5HT2C receptors in the injured spinal cord thought to underlie muscle spasticity in chronic stages of SCI utilizing a complete S2 transection SCI model in adult rats by the other dual-PI (Rabchevsky).
