Objective: Human amniotic membrane (hAM) has been used to treat wounds for more than 100 years. However, widespread use of fresh hAM has been limited due to its short shelf life and safety concerns. To overcome these concerns, different preservation methods have been introduced. The majority of these methods result in devitalized hAM (dev-hAM). Recently, we(More)
The "primitive" neurons of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) have the remarkable ability to regenerate new fibers. This regenerative process requires a sequence of gene activation and repression that is poorly understood. One gene that is almost exclusively expressed in neurons of the PNS and is activated after nerve injury is the peripherin intermediate(More)
