A quick and accurate computer-assisted method of quantifying the number of myelinated axons in normal and experimental or regenerated peripheral nerve cross-sections is described. Using an IBM-PC, quantitation software and a light microscope with a camera lucida attachment, the number of axons in a sciatic nerve can be calculated in fifteen minutes. Nine(More)
Rat sciatic nerves were bilaterally transected and repaired with an entubulation technique. The nerve interstump gap was filled with either collagen gel or collagen gel mixed with a putative neurotrophic factor (leupeptin, 4-aminopyridine, lipid angiogenic factor or glia maturation factor beta (GMF-beta]. Six weeks after nerve transection, the myelinated(More)
