Usually, CRF stimulation leads to heat lesion in the nerve material above 45[degrees]C resulting in the nonselective damage of the myelinated and unmyelinated nerve fibres [33].
Nerve biopsy in HSAN shows axonopathy with loss of myelinated and unmyelinated nerve fibers of all diameters but with normal appearance of brain and spinal cord [2].
The concentration of the mitochondria is higher in unmyelinated RGC than in myelinated fibers behind the lamina cribrosa.
In fact, remodeling of myelin continues throughout adulthood and includes different modes, such as remodeling of existing myelin and new myelination of partially myelinated or unmyelinated axons.
Nociceptive TG neurons are unmyelinated C-fibers, small in size that express VGSCs [16].
The number of unmyelinated axons were found to be 15.00[+ or -]1.54, 14.00[+ or -]1.09, 7.50[+ or -]1.37 and 13.50[+ or -]1.39 in the C, S, I and SI groups, respectively (Figure 1e).
The absence of positive staining around the neurites with the Weil's technique attested that the neuronal projections are unmyelinated axons (Fig.
As estimated by the World Health Organization, the total number of patients with diabetes were about 170 million worldwide, which is expected to double by 2030.[1],[2] Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is one of the most common and irreversible complications in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes mellitus, among which the earliest alterations occur in the small unmyelinated C- and thinly myelinated AAaAaAeAn-nerve fibers.[3],[ As the most densely innervated tissue in the body, the corneal nerve fibers are highly affected by hyperglycemia, such as decreased nerve fiber density, reduced length, and increased tortuosity.[5],[6]
MSUD edema on DWI is consistent with intramyelinic or cytotoxic edema and hypointensity with increased ADC values indicative of vasogenic-interstitial edema in unmyelinated regions.
(22-26) ESWT causes extreme excitement of the axon, destroys unmyelinated sensory fibers, improves symptoms by initiating an inflammatory response to the secretion of growth factors or nitrous oxide and revitalizes tissues by increasing angiogenesis.
Gray matter, which consists of neuronal cell bodies and unmyelinated axons, is responsible for controlling a variety of functions, including sensory perception, memory formation, decision-making and emotions.
Given that capsaicin affects unmyelinated or slightly myelinated fibers and studies have shown that the CP8% patch involves heat sensation [6], we hypothesized that quantitative thermal testing (QTT) could be a potential predictor of treatment response.
Sudomotor nerves, the smallest autonomic sympathetic nerves in the human peripheral nervous system, are long, thin, and unmyelinated C-fibers.
