After a central nervous system (CNS) injury, there is only an "abortive regeneration" of axons, while injured axons regenerate vividly in the peripheral nervous system (PNS). This difference is due, at least in part, to the existence in the periphery of Schwann cells and of growth promoting proteins they synthetize. One strategy to promote regrowth of central axons can be therefore, to modify (i.e. "peripheralize") the microenvironment by transplanting biologically active Schwann cells into the lesion site. In a rat model of traumatic paraplegia by inflation of a subdural microballoon, we performed syngeneic transplants of Schwann cells. These cells are cultured from adult dorsal root ganglia and can be kept in vitro for several months. They are transplanted in the injured spinal cord. The grafted Schwann cells are well integrated in the host tissue without detectable inflammatory reaction. Cystic cavitation and astrogliosis are reduced in grafted animals as compared to injured, non-grafted animals. The transplant is invaded by abundant, mainly unmyelinated axons which are immunoreactive for substance P, VIP or CGRP, i.e. transmitters known to be present in DRG afferents. Supraspinal afferents containing 5HT, TH or CCK accumulate at the rostral margin of the graft. Experimental procedures trying to stimulate the invasion of the graft by descending fibers, i.e. by inducing a chemoattraction are therefore of crucial importance for functional recovery. [less ▲]

A subdural inflatable micro-balloon was used to induce closed traumatic contusion to adult rat spinal cord. This spinal cord injury model was associated with reproducible and graded neurological deficits and histopathological alterations. At various delays after injury, transplantations of syngeneic adult cultured dorsal root ganglion-derived Schwann cells were performed into the spinal cord lesion. The transplants were well integrated and reduced the microcystic posttraumatic cavitation as well as the gliosis. Schwann cells transplants were invaded by numerous regenerating neurites most of which, based upon their neurotransmitter contents, seem to originate from the dorsal root ganglion. [less ▲]

We review recent data on the plasticity of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons as revealed during cultivation in vitro. Some experiments on cultured developing DRG neurons and on adult DRG neurons in vivo are also mentioned. Cultured developing and adult DRG neurons can be switched from an apolar to a multipolar phenotype by fetal calf serum or fibronectin. The effect is concentration dependent and occurs through an early modification of cell-substratum interaction. Adult DRG neurons synthesize and release within hours after injury TGF beta-1, which is a mitogen and a differentiation factor for Schwann cells. Finally, adult DRG neurons express in vitro neurotransmitters that are not expressed in vivo. This neurotransmitter plasticity can be modulated in vitro by some growth factors and in vivo by distal or proximal axotomy. [less ▲]
