The intrinsic capacity of Schwann cells to promote regeneration after limited peripheral nerve lesions has been successfully transferred to extensive peripheral nerve injuries and central nervous system lesions by autologous transplantation strategies. However, both the intrinsic ability of axotomized neurons to regenerate and the permissiveness of the parenchyma surrounding the acute injury site diminish over time. Therefore, the autologous transplantation mode requires a fast and effective… CONTINUE READING
