Editorial Mammalian neuronal cells are susceptible to injury and death due to oxygen radicals, ischemia, axotomy, glucose deprivation , excitotoxins, and other noxious agents. Even under normal physiological conditions, these cells are subject to naturally occurring programmed cell death. Protecting neurons against injury from these and other insults, and promoting their growth, differentiation and survival during development, are several groups of neurotrophic factors (1–3). Foremost among… CONTINUE READING
