From: Regeneration of long-distance peripheral nerve defects after delayed reconstruction in healthy and diabetic rats is supported by immunomodulatory chitosan nerve guides

  1. The table gives a timeline of functional motor recovery detected as evocable CMAPs recorded from the tibialis anterior or plantar muscles upon transcutaneous stimulation of the reconstructed sciatic nerve. * Indicates a significant difference (p < 0.05) between hCNG-II and CFeCNG-II at the same time point and for the same muscle as determined in the Chi square test
