Synergistic effects of corticosterone and kainic acid on neurite outgrowth in axotomized dorsal root ganglion.

Corticosterone is the main adrenal glucocorticoids induced by stress in rats. Therapeutic use of high concentration of synthetic glucocorticoids in clinical treatment of spinal cord injury suggests that pharmacological action of glucocorticoids might be beneficial for nerve repair. In this article we cultured axotomized rat dorsal root ganglion neurons to… CONTINUE READING
