Applications of Proteomics to Nerve Regeneration Research

Peripheral nerve injury is a major clinical and public health challenge. Although a common and increasingly prevalent wartime condition (1), injury to peripheral nerves, plexuses, and roots is present in 5% of patients seen in civilian trauma centers (2). In one study, almost half of peripheral nerve injuries at trauma centers were
