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.
Researchers report they have identified a pathway implicated in the death of nerve cells.
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.
