Neuromuscular recovery after peripheral nerve repair: effects of an orally-administered peptide in a primate model.

Abstract

Oral delivery of the tripeptide calpain inhibitor, leupeptin, after median nerve transection and epineural nerve repair in primates (Cebus apella) was studied for its potential benefits to neuromuscular recovery. Results of a controlled, dose-response study indicated that leupeptin was absorbed into plasma by the oral route of administration. When plasma… (More)
