Figure 1: Effect of TFHL on motor function recovery of SCI rats. BBB scores of different groups were recorded at 0, 1, 3, 7, and 14 days after SCI. All rats in the sham operation group exhibited a BBB score of 21 for the entire measurement period. The SCI group had the lowest BBB score. After 14 days of continuous treatment with TFHL (5, 10, and 20 mg/kg), the scores of the SCI + TFHL groups gradually increased with increasing drug concentration. However, the BBB scores were considered statistically significant among groups at 7 and especially 14 days (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.001). Data are expressed as the mean ± SD (n = 6; one-way analysis of variance followed by a least-significant difference post hoc test). BBB: Basso, Beattie, and Bresnahan; SCI: spinal cord injury; TFHL: total flavonoids of hawthorn leaves.
