A prominent role for phagocytic cells in the regenerative response to CNS or PNS injury has been suggested by numerous studies. In the present work we tested whether increasing the presence of phagocytic cells at a spinal cord injury site could enhance the regeneration of sensory axons from cut dorsal roots. Nitrocellulose membranes treated with TGF-beta or coated with microglial cells were cotransplanted with fetal spinal cord tissue into an injured adult rat spinal cord. Cut dorsal roots were… CONTINUE READING
