The goal of the current study was to determine if T and B lymphocytes play a role in functional recovery after peripheral nerve injury. The time course of behavioral recovery following facial nerve crush injury at the stylomastoid foramen was established in scid mice which lack functional T and B cells and reconstituted scid mice as compared to wild-type mice. The average time necessary for recovery of full eye blink reflex and vibrissae movements in wild-type mice was 10.3+/-0.2 and 9.9+/-0.34… CONTINUE READING
