Researchers have identified a signaling pathway that promotes sensory neuron grown and prevents peripheral neuropathy when blocked.
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as Levofloxacin and Ciprofloxacin, appear to increase the risk of peripheral neuropathy by 47%. However, there is no significant increased risk of developing neuropathy associated with amoxicillin use.
Researchers report they have identified a pathway implicated in the death of nerve cells.
Researchers identify the role of the tumor suppressor Merlin in regulating the integrity of axons. Damage to the axons may result in peripheral neuropathy.
Researchers uncover a key to the development of the peripheral nervous system, providing new hope to patients suffering from hereditary neuropathy.
