During the more than twenty years since its discovery (11), the nerve growth factor (NGF) has been indeed demonstrated to be an essential protagonist in the growth and development of the sympathetic nervous system (12). The NGF-stimulated growth response has been amply described from both metabolic and ultrastructural viewpoints.
