Peripheral neuropathy and injuries causing nerve damage may be healed with new technique

Many people with diabetes experience neuropathy, a painful form of nerve damage that cannot always be treated effectively with drugs. In their research of the condition, scientists at University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute discovered a mechanism that promotes growth in damaged nerve cells. In fact, the team of researchers discovered a crucial molecule that directly regulates nerve cell growth.
