This issue of International Review of Neurobiology brings together cutting-edge research on tissue engineering of the peripheral nerve. It reviews current knowledge and understanding, provides a starting point for researchers and practitioners entering the field, and builds a platform for further research and discovery. This volume covers the cutting-edge research on tissue engineering of the peripheral nerve.... or growth factors (Table 1.4), has been widely used for spinal cord repair. Ex vivo and in vivo SCI models demonstrate that chitosan is able to ... Yet, the chitosan tube blocked the invasion of glial scar tissue into the lesion site (Li et al., 2009).
