Providing the solution for you
FROM CLINICAL REALITY to BASIC SCIENCE
This nonsurgical model induces neuropathic pain as found in humans.
NeuroDigm GEL Model™ creates a tiny "hot spot" 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. 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. The 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.
The solution involves neural regeneration rather than nerve damage ... you will have new solutions.
