Muramyl dipeptide injected into crushed sciatic nerve, activates macrophages and promotes recovery of walking locomotion in rats.


We injected an immunoadjuvant, muramyl dipeptide (MDP), intrafascicularly into crushed rat sciatic nerve so as to test whether activation of macrophages promotes regeneration of peripheral nerve from crush injury and improves walking locomotion in rats. Immunohistochemical staining of Schwann cells and macrophages with anti-S100 and ED-1 monoclonal… (More)
