Struggle at the Site of Nerve Injury: a rat sciatic nerve study on fundamental problems of peripheral nerve injury
In summary, we have proven the effectiveness of RGTAs in reducing the pull out force after nerve crush injury. The results of this study do not reveal positive or negative influence of RGTAs on axonal regeneration. We conclude that local and systemic application of RGTAs after peripheral nerve trauma has a therapeutic effect on neural adhesions and should further be investigated.
