This study examines a radiation-induced invasion and spread of Schwann cells into ventral gray regions of the lumbar spinal cord. The prevalence of these cells within the gray matter and the time course of their appearance in the ventral spinal cord is quite different from the pattern of Schwann cell development in dorsal spinal cord reported previously. The focus is on 2 possible pathways, each involving astrocytic barriers, by which Schwann cells access the ventral gray matter. The first of… CONTINUE READING
