Summary for Patent: 5,173,295
Title: Method of enhancing the regeneration of injured nerves and adhesive pharamaceutical formulation therefor
Abstract:The regeneration of injured nerves is enhanced by supplying collagenase to the zone of injury of the nerve. Growth of nerve sprouts over the zone of injury is aided by the presence of effective amounts of collagenase during the regeneration process. If the nerve has been severed, collagenase is supplied to the ends of the proximal and distal stumps. A nerve graft may be interposed between the stumps. Natural fibrin has been used as glue to join nerve stumps, and collagenase is effective when used in admixture with fibrin.
