We carried out a partial ligation of the sciatic nerve in rats to induce nerve injury and neuropathic hyperalgesia. We showed that nitrotyrosine, a marker of peroxynitrite activity, was formed after partial nerve injury. Double-labelling immunohistochemistry showed that nitrotyrosine-immunoreactive cells were mainly macrophages and Schwann cells. Daily(More)
The cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) will require either the replacement or regeneration of insulin-producing cells, together with measures that prevent their immune-mediated destruction. Experiments in rodent models have found that pancreatic stem cells, committed progenitors and replicating beta-cells can all contribute to insulin-producing cell(More)
