Acute Effects of Gangliosides on CNS Injury
Recently investigators have focused their research efforts on exogenous ganglioside effects on processes associated with CNS injury. These CNS studies were prompted by reports that ganglioside-treatments enhance peripheral nerve regeneration after damage (Gorio et al., 1981; 1983), and that when gangliosides are added to some cell or tissue cultures, increased neurite outgrowth occurs (Ferrari et al., 1983; Leon et al., 1982; Roisen et al., 1981).
