Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is an antioxidant that also stimulates nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis and secretion. In an earlier pilot study in our laboratory, Schwann cell growth was accelerated, and NGF mRNA expression and NGF secretion were promoted. The present study was designed to explore the possible nerve-inducing effect of PQQ on a nerve tube(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) on nerve regeneration of transected sciatic nerve in animal models. METHODS Forty SD rats weighing 220-240 g were randomized into a PQQ group (n = 20) and a control group (n = 20). Each animal underwent sciatic nerve transection operation. After the operation, PQQ 0.5 ml (250 microg/Kg)(More)
