Mean amplitudes of EMG motor responses in the biceps brachii (BB) and flexor carpi ulnaris (FCU) muscles 2 months after end-to-side neurorrhaphy of MCN stump with UN and intrathecal application for 2 weeks of PBS, Cerebrolysin or CNTF.

* indicates statistical significance (P < 0.05) when comparing rats with ALZET minipumps filled with CNTF or Cerebrolysin and PBS.
