The GEL Model
The Extracellular Matrix has answers


This gel matrix model induces persistent neuropathic pain as found in humans.

NeuroDigm GEL Model creates a physiologic ligature helping you answer questions such as:

What causes persistent pain without visible damage to the nerve?
Why doesn't the patient's neuropathic pain heal?
Can persistent chronic pain be healed or repaired?

How can a clinically "invisible" neural lesion or dysfunction cause prolonged pain in patients?

NeuroDigm GEL Model uses a gentle percutaneous procedure with a biocompatible gel to gradually over time create chronic neuropathic pain, initiating and maintaining as an ectopic focus or "hotspot". Known pain behaviors are created without the use of surgical incisions, nerve ligations, nerve transections, nerve irritants or chemicals.

NeuroDigm has translated actual clinical experience with chronic pain patients into a gentle animal model based on tissue repair, not tissue damage. This gel matrix model mimicks the healing of a soft tissue injury with residual perineural fibrosis. The model creates a site of arrested neural regeneration in response to a natural stricture of fibrosis by the peripheral nerve. Pain is a Tissue Disease not a Number

The solution involves neural tissue repair or regeneration rather than nerve damage ... you will have new solutions
