Abstract

Neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) is a genetic condition characterized with peripheral nervous system tumors (PNSTs) including plexiform neurofibroma (pNFs). Plexiform Neurofibromas (pNF) are a pathological condition observed at birth in 20-25% NF1 patients. pNFs often lead to nerve dysfunction, deformity pain and damage. We are interested in investigating molecular pathways that drive the aberrant proliferation and invasiveness of SCs leading to neurofibromas. Bioengineered conductive polymers have been tested widely for their potential use in nerve regeneration. In this study we characterized the response of SCs isolated from NF1 patients to electrical stimulation through a conductive biopolymer.
