Sympathetic sprouting in the dorsal root ganglia of the injured peripheral nerve in a rat neuropathic pain model
The extent of the sprouting of sympathetic postganglionic fibers in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and the peripheral nerves was examined in neuropathic rats at different postoperative times. AfterExpand

An animal model of neuropathic pain employing injury to the sciatic nerve branches
The present study was conducted to develop a new animal model of neuropathic pain employing injury to the distal sciatic nerve branches. Under halothane anesthesia, the tibial, sural, and/or commonExpand

Comparison of sympathetic sprouting in sensory ganglia in three animal models of neuropathic pain
Abstract Sympathetic postganglionic fibers sprout in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) after peripheral nerve injury. Therefore, one possible contributing factor of sympathetic dependency of neuropathicExpand

Effects of glial transplantation on functional recovery following acute spinal cord injury.
Numerous efforts have been made to maximize the efficacy of treatment for spinal cord injury (SCI). Recently, oligodendrocyte-type 2 astrocyte (O-2A) progenitor cells have been reported toExpand
