Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) exert immunosuppressive effects in several inflammatory diseases, including cancer and autoimmune disease. We demonstrated that Ly6C+Ly6G− myeloid cells which infiltrated into injured spinal cord had a typical feature of MDSCs and played a critical role in the attenuation of acute inflammation and the subsequent tissue repair process after spinal cord injury (SCI). Our findings clarified the role of MDSCs after traumatic SCI, and suggested a potential MDSC-based therapeutic strategy for the acute phase of central nervous system injury.
