Axons undergo Wallerian degeneration (WD) distal to a point of injury. In the lesioned PNS, WD may be followed by successful axonal regeneration and functional recovery. However, in the lesioned mammalian CNS, there is no significant axonal regeneration. Myelin-associated proteins (MAPs) have been shown to play significant roles in preventing axonal regeneration in the CNS. Since relatively little is known about such events in human CNS pathologies, we performed an immunohistochemical investigation on the temporal changes of four MAPs during WD in post-mortem spinal cords of 22 patients who died 2 days to 30 years after either cerebral infarction or traumatic spinal cord injury. In contrast to experimental studies in rats, the loss of myelin sheaths is greatly delayed in humans and continues slowly over a number of years. However, in agreement with animal data, a sequential loss of myelin proteins was found which was dependent on their location within the myelin sheath. Myelin proteins situated on the peri-axonal membrane were the first to be lost, the time course correlating with the loss of axonal markers. Proteins located within compact myelin or on the outer myelin membrane were still detectable 3 years after injury in degenerating fibre tracts, long after the disappearance of the corresponding axons. The persistence of axon growth-inhibitory proteins such as NOGO-A in degenerating nerve fibre tracts may contribute to the maintenance of an environment that is hostile to axon regeneration, long after the initial injury. The present data highlight the importance of correlating the well documented, lesion-induced changes that take place in controlled laboratory investigations with those that take place in the clinical domain.

Back pain is very frequent in western countries and it represents a very high social cost. The treatment is based on five modalities: medication, physiotherapy, invasive technics, rehabilitation programs and psycho-social approaches. Several treatments may be proposed simultaneously and introduced gradually. Steroid administration by epidural injection is frequently used in Belgium, even though no prospective randomised studies have shown a real benefit over the long term. The indications for epidural injection must be carefully chosen. These include subacute pain (less than six months) in the lower limbs despite a well observed medical treatment. Patients are invited to give informed consent; the technic must be performed in an appropriate environment by an experienced physician. The initial treatment of back pain is medical. This pathology is multifactorial and the relief of symptoms is often incomplete. The patient should be urged to feel responsible for and involved in his treatment.
