Recently we demonstrated that oxidized cellulose (OC), a surgical topical hemostatic agent, induces subjacent nerve fiber degeneration by a diffusible chemical mechanism. Since OC is highly acidic, we examined the role of acidity in the development of neuropathy by OC in this study. Fifteen minutes' exposure to culture media containing OC (2 mg/ml, pH 3.47… CONTINUE READING
