Nerve injuries may occur due to trauma, tumor removal, and accidental surgical resection. Rodents are the most common pre-clinical nerve defect models; however, accelerated regeneration of the damaged peripheral nerves in rodents and inability to investigate large gaps are major limitations for the rodent model, making large animal models necessary. The purpose of this project is to identify key considerations in developing a non-human primate (NHP) large-gap peripheral nerve model, as well as to provide an interim analysis of our first set of NHPs.
