Neural Regeneration Using Human Bone Morphogenetic Proteins


Methods and devices are disclosed for inducing growth of neural cells, and repairing neural defects in a mammal. The method comprises administering to said mammal at the site of neural defect, damage or depletion, an effective amount of a bone morphogenetic protein, either in admixture with a pharmaceutically acceptable vehicle, or adsorbed to a suitable matrix. The device comprises bone morphogenetic protein, optionally in combination with other factors, adsorbed on a suitable matrix and contained within an artificial nerve replacement vessel.
