The Neuropathy Association’s Biennial Meeting Offered Help and Hope

Zarifa Sahenk, M.D., director of the Neuromuscular Division and the Experimental Neuromuscular Laboratories at Ohio State University, outlined advances in her studies of the role of neurotrophin-3 (NT3) in nerve regeneration in patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) neuropathy. NT3, which encourages nerve growth, is secreted by the Schwann cells that form a protective insulation (myelin sheath) around peripheral nerves. [The Neuropathy Association]
