Local riluzole release from a thermosensitive hydrogel rescues injured motoneurons through nerve root stumps in a brachial plexus injury rat model

Fang J, Li L, Zhai H, Qin B, Quan D, Shi E, Zhu M, Yang J, Liu X, Gu L (2020) Local riluzole release from a thermosensitive hydrogel rescues injured motoneurons through nerve root stumps in a brachial plexus injury rat model. Neurochem Res 45(11):2800-2813. doi: 10.1007/s11064-020-03120-0

Summary: The authors refer to a review by Gulino describing two rodent models of motoneuron degeneration were induced by neurotoxics including volkensin and cholera toxin-B saporin, which are able to destroy motoneurons through retrograde transportation.
