Peripheral Nerve Injuries (PNI) Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is a vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body. Peripheral nerves (PN) also send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold or a finger is burned. The PNS is comprised of three types of cells: neuronal cells, glial cells, and stromal cells. Nerves are comprised of various combinations of motor, sensory, and autonomic neurons.
PNIs remains a major medical problem worldwide. These lesions are caused mainly by vehicular motor accidents, penetrating trauma after stabbing incidents, gunshot injuries, and stretching or crushing injuries after falls. Fractures of the adjacent bones are commonly associated with PNIs, such as humeral fractures associated with radial neuropathy. Depending on the mechanism of the injury, the PNIs can be sharp or blunt, transected, or lacerated; the nerves may be displaced, contused, stretched, or even partially divided, leading to neuromas or lesions in continuity.
Peripheral Nerve Injuries (PNI) Diagnosis
To fully determine the extent of the damage to the nerve, an electrical conduction test can be used to determine the passage of electrical currents through the nerves. The tests used for diagnosis include electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction velocity (NCV) test, MRI neurography, CT scan, and biopsy. Different tests like blood tests, spinal fluid tests, muscle strength tests, and tests of the ability to detect vibrations can also be performed.
Peripheral Nerve Injuries (PNI) Treatment
Depending on the location and degree of the nerve damage, the doctor may prescribe different courses of therapy. For mild nerve injuries, the following non-surgical treatments may be part of the plan such as acupuncture, massage therapy, medication, orthotics, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and weight loss. More severe injuries may require peripheral nerve surgery, which is performed by a neurosurgeon. These surgical procedures can be highly complicated, and this is why it is essential to select an experienced surgeon and team for peripheral nerve operations which may involve nerve grafting, nerve regeneration, or tendon or muscle transfer.
Medications recommended for chronic neuropathic pain are also used for other medical conditions. Among the most effective are a class of drugs first was marketed to treat depression. Nortriptyline and newer serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors such as duloxetine hydrochloride modulate pain by increasing the brain’s ability to inhibit incoming pain signals. Another class of medications that quiets nerve cell electrical signaling is also used for epilepsy.
Common drugs include gabapentin, pregabalin, and less often topiramate and lamotrigine. Carbamazepine and oxcarbazepine are particularly effective for trigeminal neuralgia, a focal neuropathy of the face. Local anesthetics and related drugs that block nerve conduction may help when other medications are ineffective or poorly tolerated. Medications put on the skin (topically administered) are generally appealing because they stay near the skin and have fewer unwanted side effects.

Peripheral Nerve Injuries Marketed Products
Nerbridge is a resorbable, artificial nerve conduit with polyglycolic acid tubing and a collagenous interior. It is the only such device currently approved in Japan. Nerbridge is mainly used in clinical practice to bridge peripheral nerves after traumatic nerve injury, but there are few reports on its application in reconstruction and repair of the facial nerve. As a part of its global strategy, the company subsequently applied with the FDA to sell Nerbridge in the United States. In June 2016, Toyobo achieved 510(k) clearance with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sell Nerbridge.

Neurolac and Neurolac Thin Wall (TW): Polyganics
Neurolac and Neurolac Thin Wall (TW) are nerve guides that provide mechanical support to the healing nerve for a period of up to 10 weeks after which they are naturally degraded. These are indicated for reconstruction of peripheral nerve discontinuities of up to 20 mm, typically in the hand and wrist. Neurolac TW features a reduced wall thickness to facilitate handling and needle penetration if required. These conduits are approved in the US, EU, and distributed in various countries.

Peripheral Nerve Injuries Emerging Technique
CelGro: Orthocell Limited
CelGro is a unique collagen medical device intended for use in tissue regeneration and repair. CelGro enhances nerve regeneration in three different ways. Nerve repair with CelGro does not require the use of sutures to hold the membrane in place. Tensionless repair is highly desirable in nerve reconstruction for several reasons, but primarily because it reduces the risk of additional damage to the nerve, and it reduces the time needed to complete the surgery. Orthocell designed CelGro with handling characteristics to assist surgeons perform complex reconstructive surgical procedures with the tensionless repair. CelGro is proving to increase the strength and quality of the repair and makes surgery easier.

NTX-001: Neuraptive Therapeutics
NTX-001 is a kit used during surgical nerve repairs after trauma or during face and body reconstructive procedures. It is (comprised of previously approved components) provided as sterile solutions. The active pharmaceutical agent is a topically-administered product used in conjunction with a delivery device directly to the nerve. The therapy has been extensively studied in preclinical studies, and early clinical cases support advancing into the mid-stage clinical studies. NTX-001 is a potentially transformative adjunctive treatment for peripheral nerve injuries, using a propriety system for the reconnection of severed nerves.

Peripheral Nerve Injuries Market Outlook
Treatment for PNI depends on the type of nerve injury. The primary goal of the repair is to achieve the reinnervation of the target organs by regenerating sensory, motor, and autonomic axons into the environment of the distal nerve with minimal loss of fibers at the suture line, as the therapeutic options, at present, cannot achieve perfect sensory and motor recovery in all cases. The treatment is mainly based on surgery and the use of nerve conduits, wraps, and nerve grafts.
Since antiepileptics such as gabapentin, oxcarbazepine, and lamotrigine target high-voltage activated Ca channels, they are useful in nerve pain management. Pregabalin has a similar MOA like gabapentin, which does not affect GABA receptors. Gabapentin and pregabalin are particularly useful for neuropathic pain in patients with a history of cardiovascular disorders, glaucoma, or urinary retention.
Nerve grafting remains the “gold standard”; clinical treatment for peripheral nerve defects, regardless of the size of the gap. As per the claims of AxoGen, Avance Nerve Graft has no disadvantages related to immunogenicity due to its decellularized and cleansed extracellular matrix. The FDA or Conformit Europe approved most of the conduits for clinical use that were made of type I collagen, such as NeuraGen, NeuroFlex, and NeuroWrap. Besides, there are available conduits also, which are synthesized of polyglycolic acid and polylactide-caprolactone (Neurotube, Neurolac).
In March 2013, Toyobo received permission from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare to manufacture and sell Nerbridge, a new medical treatment device for the regeneration of damaged nerves.
Gene therapy offers another exciting alternative to autologous nerve grafts for enhancing peripheral nerve repair. Despite major progress in understanding peripheral nerve regeneration, the gold standard for repairing a nerve defect remains autografting. Until now, there are no studies to prove better outcomes than nerve grafting.
According to DelveInsight, the PNI market is expected to change in the study period 2017–2030.
