  1. 1. Regulation of Injury Induced Schwann Cell Proliferation Schwann Cell Proliferation

    University dissertation from Department of Animal Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Åsa Fex Svenningsen; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; estrogen; signal transduction; insulin like growth-factors; Schwann cell; peripheral; nerve regeneration; Djurfysiologi; Animal physiology; progesterone;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate injury induced proliferation of Schwann cells with emphasis of the effects of the insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and IGF-II) and the sex hormones progesterone and estrogen. Proliferation, measured as [3H] thymidine incorporation, was studied in cultured segments of the rat sciatic nerve or through the use of the thymidine analogue bromo- deoxy-uridine (BrdU) in combination with immunocytochemistry.

  2. 2. Neuron-glial Interaction in the Developing Peripheral Nervous System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Corell; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schwann cell; nonmyelinating Schwann cell; myelinating Schwann cell; development; proliferation; differentiation; myelin; neural stem cell; central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; enteric nervous system; N-cadherin; GABA; GAD; GABA B receptor; baclofen; CGP55485; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : The nervous system, including the brain, is the most sophisticated organ in the mammalian body. In such a complex network, neuron-glial interaction is essential and controls most developmental processes, such as stem cell fate determination, migration, differentiation, synapse formation, ensheathment and myelination.

  3. 3. Schwann cells and mesenchymal stem cells as promoter of peripheral nerve regeneration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Maria Cristina Mantovani; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peripheral nerve regeneration; Schwann cell; adult stem cell; myelin; senescence;

    Abstract : The transplantation of primary Schwann cells (SC) has been shown to improve nerve regeneration. However, to monitor the survival of transplanted cells within the host, a stable labelling method is required. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tendon autografts for bridging nerve defects

    University dissertation from Jerker Brandt Department of Experimental ResearchMalmö University HospitalSE 205 02 MalmöSweden

    Author : Jerker Brandt; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Surgery; orthopaedics; cell culture; graft; rat; collagen; tendon; Schwann cells; axons; Peripheral nerve regeneration; axonal outgrowth; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : A new method, where a tendon segment – a tendon autograft – was used as graft material for peripheral nerve reconstruction, was developed. Defects, 10-15 mm long, in rat sciatic nerves were bridged by various modifications of tendons. READ MORE

  5. 5. Repair and Reconstruction of Peripheral Nerve Injuries. Treatment with G-CSF and Stromal Vascular Fraction

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Hanna Frost; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peripheral nerve injuries; nerve regeneration; reconstructive surgical procedures; diabetes mellitus; rat sciatic nerve; granulocyte colony-stimulating factor; stromal vascular fraction; electrospinning; rats; Schwann cells;

    Abstract : While surgery is a cornerstone in treatment of peripheral nerve injuries, it is not a comprehensive approach, and outcome is unsatisfactory, especially sensory function. The present aim was to translate recent findings about stem- and progenitor cells to improve regenerative outcome, where the cells have to be autologous, available within the same surgical procedure, and minimally manipulated.
