The effect of exercise on mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells involved in the repair of sciatic nerve crush injury.

Object Mobilization of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) from bone marrow involved in the process of peripheral nerve regeneration occurs mostly through deposits of CD34(+) cells. Treadmill exercise, with either differing intensity or duration, has been shown to increase axon regeneration and sprouting, but the effect of mobilization of HPCs on… (More)
