Mavrogenis AF, Pavlakis K, Stamatoukou A, Papagelopoulos PJ, Theoharis S, Zetahang Z, Soucacos PN, Zoubos AB (2013) Intraneural OX7-saporin for neuroma-in-continuity in a rat model. Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 23(3):263-272. doi: 10.1007/s00590-012-0996-x
Summary: The authors created a model of neuroma-in-continuity to explore the effect of OX7-SAP (Cat. #IT-02) on the neuroma. The left common peroneal, tibial or sciatic nerves were crushed, then at three and six weeks, the nerve cut distal to the site of nerve crush. Pressure microinjection of 2 μl of natural saline or 2 μl of the OX7-SAP was done at the nerve stump 2 days later. Sacrifice was done after 3 weeks. In all control specimens a neuroma-in-continuity was observed. In 19 of the 24 OX7-SAP specimens, histology showed inhibition of neuroma-in-continuity formation.
