Electrical stimulation and Botox combination therapy to enhance peripheral nerve regeneration after injury

This project combines two treatments for advancement in peripheral nerve injury to regenerate damaged tissues with Botox and eSTIM.

Research Project

Modeling effects of common polymorphisms on peripheral nerve injury recovery

Every year, over 200,000 Americans sustain a peripheral nerve injury (PNI). Although peripheral nerves have the ability to spontaneously regenerate, 90% of PNI patients do not regain full motor function. Despite ongoing research, the main treatment for peripheral nerve injury—surgery— continues to be performed without the assistance of any medication or other therapies to enhance the rate of axon regrowth.
