Activated macrophage/microglial cells can promote the regeneration of sensory axons into the injured spinal cord.

Abstract

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… (More)
