  • Schwann
  • Researchers from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Exeter, in collaboration with colleagues from Rutgers University, Newark and University College London, have furthered understanding of the mechanism by which the cells that insulate the nerve cells in the peripheral nervous system, Schwann cells, protect and repair damage caused by trauma and disease.

  • Schwann cells, because of their plasticity, are able to revert back to an immature 'repair' cell to repair damage to the peripheral nervous system. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Potential explanations include elaboration of some neurotoxic factor by the tumor, disruption of axonal and/or Schwann cell metabolism by the tumor, and an immunologic reaction to antigens shared by the neoplasm and peripheral nerve elements (i.e., innocent bystander reaction). (vin.com)

  • this latest addition to the Medical Radiology/Diagnostic Imaging series is indispensable to those interested in using sonography to diagnose and treat peripheral nerve diseases. (springer.com)
  • Many chronic inflammatory diseases and mental health conditions affecting military Service members and veterans involve abnormal activity in the peripheral nervous system , which plays a key role in organ function. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • vitro
  • This complexity is difficult to model with current in vitro models and studies of nociception typically rely on in vivo systems. (nc3rs.org.uk)
