Anyone have news about the efficacy of nerve growth factor?
I have an inherited sensory motor neuroaxonal neuropathy of long standing. It is getting closer to the disabling stage, with significant architectural changes in the feet requiring orthotics, and atrophy of tendons and muscles in the legs. I have literally exhausted all conventional treatments, neurontin, lyric - cymbalta, etc., and am now grasping at straws and/or miracles. I have heard of the use of nerve growth factor in certain spinal cord injuries, but have not heard of it being used much to treat my kind of neuropathy. If anyone has any additional information, I would love to hear about it. Thanks...Paulo
