  • This study shows the expression pattern of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in the anterior and posterior horns of the spinal cord after brachial plexus injury. The animals were divided into three injury groups: group 1, right C(7) anterior root avulsion; group 2, right C(7) anterior root avulsion and cut right C(5)-T(1) posterior roots; and group 3, right C(7) anterior root avulsion plus right hemitransection between the C(5) and C(6) segments of the spinal cord. These animals were… CONTINUE READING
