    Diabetic polyneuropathy is the most common acquired diffuse disorder of the peripheral nervous system. It is generally assumed that insulin benefits human and experimental diabetic neuropathy indirectly by lowering glucose levels. Insulin also provides potent direct support of neurons and axons,...

    We investigated the effect of zinc supplementation on the expression of metallothionein, lipid peroxidation (malondialdehyde, MDA), and poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) in the sciatic nerve, motor nerve conduction velocity of the left sciatic posterior tibial nerve in streptozotocin...

    Regeneration of diabetic axons has delays in onset, rate, and maturation. It is possible that microangiopathy of vasa nervorum, the vascular supply of the peripheral nerve, may render an unfavorable local environment for nerve regeneration. We examined local nerve blood flow proximal and distal...

    Problem statement: Peripheral nerve injuries are associated with morbidity and outcomes of peripheral nerve repair are poor. Moreover, it can subsequently leads to economic or social disability. Recent findings have shown that oxidative stress plays an important role on the functional recovery...
