The fundamental importance of polypeptide growth factors in regulating growth and maintaining viability within the CNS is now widely acknowledged. Although the physiological roles of individual growth factors remain to be defined, increasing evidence suggests involvement within the CNS in development, maintenance of neurones, injury responses, the pathogenesis of degenerative diseases and possibly oncogenesis. This review focuses on nerve growth factor and the fibroblast growth factors.
