Lab-grown nerves promote nerve regeneration after injury

... in two directions - toward each other and into the host tissue at each side. The constructs were transplanted to bridge an excised segment of the sciatic nerve in rats. Up to 16 weeks post-transplantation, the constructs still had their pre-transplant shape, with surviving transplanted neurons at the ...

Nature publication on pain research

... in experiments to target the GABA receptors that control spinal pain relay. They first induced a slight inflammation in one hind paw or irritated the sciatic nerve to induce pain. A few days later the mice received an injection of a benzodiazepine close to the spinal cord. Experiments with the mice allowed ...

JCI online early table of contents: Jan. 2, 2008

... sensory neurons. Lidocaine activated TRVP1 located on both rodent neurons and a human cell line. When applied to either isolated mouse skin or sciatic nerves, lidocaine induced TRVP1-mediated release of the peptide CGRP, a key component in inflammation of the nerves. These data led the authors to ...

Pain treatment in the field: Good for soldiers' comfort and better for rebuilding troop strength

... treated in the field, sciatica (leg pain and/or tingling, numbness or weakness that travels from the low back through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg) accounted for 55.7 percent of the cases; noncardiac chest pain, 11.5 percent; arm pain from a herniated disc in the ...

Protein found that may provide relief from neuropathic pain

... observed that injured peripheral nerves in both mice and rats release LRP1 into the surrounding tissue. Administration of LRP1 into the rodents sciatic nerves prior to injury provided a protective effect, decreasing the level and activity of injury-induced proinflammatory cytokines, such as ...

A New Technology for Safe Tumor Surgery

... tumor was predicted to be distinct from the main sciatic nerve, and the tumor was safely removed. All ... of the large tumor was in relation to the sciatic nerve, it meant they couldn't predict in which ... approach for safe and complete removal of sciatic notch dumbbell-shaped tumors has been problematic ...

New Findings Could Reduce The Extent Of Spinal Cord Injuries

... of the motor and sensory nerve cell death could be prevented in mice with sciatic nerve injury and researchers feel they are on their way to developing a ... damage that is caused. For the study, the researchers treated injured sciatic nerves in mice with Hsc70 and Hsp70. In mice treated with the proteins, ...

Mayo Clinic Physicians Have Adapted Real-time 3-D Ultrasound Imaging Devices

... For example, their latest case study, reported in the July issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia, describes how they used 3-D ultrasound to find the sciatic nerve behind the thigh of a woman who needed major reconstructive surgery on her foot. Using the imaging technique to help physicians place a ...

Nerve regeneration for Spinal cord injuries

... spinal cord injury. One lesion was made at the time of the cord injury and a second was made a week later. Both lesions were located in the animals' sciatic nerve, which is part of the PNS. The researchers feel that getting the growth beyond the lesion is very important and it is possible if the ...

Stem Cells From Hair Follicle To Repair Nerve Damage

... the Shwann cells, a variety of glia cells that wrap around axons in the peripheral nervous system. When injected into disabled mice with injured sciatic nerve, these Shwann cells produced myelin sheaths that surround nerve axons, and then the mice were able to walk normally, the researchers ...

Shrinkage Of Brain Size Linked To Chronic Pain

... in brain density is related to pain duration, pain-related characteristics, and is more severe in the neuropathic type of pain, which is caused by sciatic nerve damage. Thus researchers hypothesize that some of the decrease in brain density reflects only tissue shrinkage, which could be reversed with ...

Clotting Protein plays a role in nerve repair

... play a critical role in repairing damaged myelin. The researchers made the discovery by studying mice that lacked the protein. After an injury to the sciatic nerve (located in the leg), myelin regenerated much more rapidly in fibrin-free mice than in normal mice. Strickland's team describes fibrin's ...
