BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE EPO has been shown to have beneficial effects in a variety of CNS injury models. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of EPO on nerve regeneration and functional recovery in a rat model of peripheral nerve surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sciatic nerve of the rat with a 10-mm defect was bridged with a silicone rubber tube. Forty adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were assigned to the control or experimental groups to receive an intraperitoneal injection… CONTINUE READING
