Effects in vitro of serum from patients with Landry-Guillain-Barré syndrome of alcoholic peripheral neuropathy on outgrowth of rat dorsal root ganglia

Autor(es): Armati-Gulson P J

Resumo: Cultures of three-day-old rat dorsal root ganglia were grown in control media containing human cord serum or in experimental media containing serum from patients with Landry-Guillain-Barré syndrome, alcoholic peripheral neuropathy, or normal adults. Analysis of variance in control cultures showed that there was a falloff of mean outgrowth length during active myelination by fourteen days, while cultures grown in the three experimental media had a greater outgrowth length and did not form myelin.
