Abstract:

Retinal Derived Growth Factor a heparin binding growth factor that is identical to aFGF acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor stimulates neurite outgrowth in vitro. We have established a model system that will allow us to determine if a gradient of FGF can cause nerve regeneration in vivo and that this regeneration is predominantly due to increased neurite outgrowth by sensory nerves. kt
