New horizons for nerve repair:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A novel delivery system for peripheral nerve regeneration could have implications for successful stem cell delivery and spinal cord repair. Dr Shelly Sakiyama-Elbert, of the Washington University in St Louis, has designed a system that uses a nerve guide tube filled with a gel containing growth factor proteins that stimulate nerve regeneration and strategically placed sugars and peptides for binding in the gel matrix. The system, which has already promoted peripheral nerve regeneration in rats, may also have future application in the delivery of stem cells.
